Review: Leitz Non-Alcoholic Wines

Leitz Non-Alcoholic Wine Review

So, who is this producer making such a big splash in the world of non-alcoholic wine, and how does it deliver authenticity, quality and great taste across its alcohol-free wine portfolio?


Consistently ranked at or near the top of every list of the best non-alcoholic wines, Leitz provides impressive red, white and Rosé options (both still and sparkling) for wine lovers seeking alcohol-free alternatives without compromising quality. “Leitz is “turning taste buds toward dealcoholized wines” notes Imbibe Magazine which goes on to describe Leitz alcohol-free wines as “highly food-friendly”.


With a rich tradition of grape growing dating back to 1744, Johannes Leitz took over the family business from his grandfather (Josef Leitz) in 1985, and has since earned international reputation as one of the most renowned winemakers in Germany. In fact, Johannes Leitz was named "Winemaker of the Year 2011" by Gault Millau! But that’s only part of the story…


With a proclamation that “there is an alternative for every occasion” and a guiding precept of “Quality Optimization”, Leitz offers a full portfolio of both alcohol-free and traditional wine. For its alcohol-free products, this process starts with a commitment to using only top-quality grapes, employing sophisticated techniques to dealcoholize the wine, and leveraging innovation to drive authenticity - all resulting in a delicious range of high-quality alcohol-free wines. Sound impressive? It certainly is!
