Review: Joyus Non-Alcoholic Wines

Joyus Non-Alcoholic Wine Review

Headquartered in Seattle, Joyus takes great pride in being the “only sober-owned” and “only woman-owned non-alcoholic winery in the country”. Its founder, 17 years sober Jessica Selander, has a personal understanding of what it’s like not to “drink”, and is excited about the prospect of driving cultural change – making it “comfortably normal” not to drink alcohol be it for a night, a weekend, 9 months or beyond. The result – a passion to create a premium non-alcoholic wine that’s exciting to both the palate and social consciousness.


And the results so far have been impressive.


For the second year in a row, Joyus took home big-time hardware in the Best Non-Alcoholic wine category of The San Francisco International Wine Competition; one of the world’s most prestigious blind wine tastings since 1980. We know how hard it is to craft an award-winning non-alcoholic wine (we've done it twice ourselves), so we're extra impressed with what Joyus has managed to accomplish.  


How can Joyus look, smell, and taste just like “real” wine you ask? Simple. Joyus leverages the industry’s top experts and utilizes the latest technology to gently remove the alcohol (dealcoholize the wine) without compromising quality or taste. Ready to try some? Here’s a review of the full lineup of Joyus non-alcoholic wines:

Alcohol: Less than 0.5% alcohol by volume

Calories: 75 per bottle (roughly 19 calories per 187ml serving)

Carbs: 3.7g per serving

Sugar: 3.7g per serving

Enticing aromas of just-picked watermelon, ripe peaches and fresh herbs lead the way to a crisp, dry palate with those same red fruits plus bright acidity and just the right amount of minerality. A great pairing for pan-seared shrimp, fresh fruit, or your favorite salad! Serve chilled.

Alcohol: Less than 0.5% alcohol by volume

Calories: 31 per 187ml serving

Sugar: 2.5g per serving 

This beautiful, gently dealcoholized Cabernet Sauvignon leads with layers of perfectly ripe dark berries followed by notes of aged oak and hints of vanilla. The well-integrated tannins deliver a supple mid-palate leading to an enjoyably extended finish. The result is a wine with great balance, warmth and complexity.

With a rounded body and bright acidity, this sparkler is great for celebrations big and small - and the perfect bubbles for an evening with friends. Lively notes of Granny Smith apple and crisp pear energetically greet the palate followed by a refreshing, ripe melon finish. Quite delicious!

Fresh and delicately aromatic, this bubbly is bursting with flavors of ripe blackberry, juicy strawberry and citrus blossom which culminate in a wonderfully crisp finish. Great with charcuterie boards, fresh fruit, and light appetizers. An excellent bubbly that can be enjoyed year round!
