9 Best Non Alcoholic Red Wines to Try in 2021

9 Best Non-Alcoholic Red Wines

Of all the amazing options in the non-alcoholic drinks space, there is one category that seems to lag a bit behind the others: non-alcoholic red wine. While there certainly isn’t any shortage of bottles on the market, for whatever reason the response to most options in the space is pretty polarizing. It’s either love at first sip, or straight down the drain.

 

Now, there’s a reason why crafting a delicious alcohol-free red wine is so difficult. With a much higher ABV (alcohol-by-volume) content than beer, and no mixer to amplify or mask flavors as you would with spirits, traditional wine relies heavily on alcohol for both aroma and taste. Meaning when you remove it from the equation, it becomes very difficult to replicate the same experience.
