ENJOY DRINKING THE ALCOHOL-FREE WAY

Fancy a chilled glass of Rosé, a fresh aromatic Riesling or a smooth Chardonnay but want to cut back on the alcoholic units?

Simply switch your usual bottle of wine for Eisberg non alcoholic wine and experience the real taste of wine, without the alcohol and with only a third of the calories.

Eisberg alcohol-free wine is made in exactly the same way as your favourite wine, but with one difference.  At the end of the process the alcohol is gently removed using one of the world’s most advanced processes, leaving all of the flavours of the wine, but none of the alcohol.

There are four varietals in the range: A refreshingly aromatic Riesling, a crisp Chardonnay, a juicy succulent Rosé and a fruity red Cabernet Sauvignon.

Suitable as an accompaniment dining with friends, or enjoying on its own, Eisberg contains 0.05% alcohol and only 34 calories per 125 ml glass, making it a great alternative to calorie laden booze.

The full range is available in Morrisons and selected varieties in Asda, Waitrose, Booths and Bargain Booze, RRP £3.50.


Girls - and boys! - I am going to present to you a truly gorgeous product that will make your teetotal life just that much better during this holiday season! If you're a wine lover, this is the one for you.

Personally, I was always more of a spirit drinker much to the dismay of my stomach. If I did opt for wine, more often than not it was a rose with an absurd alcohol content. I also preferred sparking over the drier varieties.

When I got an email offering me the chance to give Eisberg a try, I was very excited. No alcohol, and barely there calories! SOLD!!!! 

Prior to opening the bottle, which has a screw top rather than those nightmare-ish corks I can never manage to get out in one piece, I found myself checking over and over again that this was 'safe' for me to drink. My brain was stuck on "Is there definitely no alcohol in this bottle?!" and it got to a point where I just had to laugh at myself. Apparently my subconscious is scared of 'lucid' me making a careless mistake and destroying everything.  

I can confirm there is no alcohol in this bottle. Haha!!

My first taste was quite overwhelming on my senses! It really does taste exactly like normal wine would, however there was a much sweeter note which took me a while to figure out. It's jam! More specifically, strawberry and cherry. The overall flavour is quite rich, or at least for my palette, so a small glass of 125ml would be enough for me if I were to drink it with dinner. 

Eisberg  recommends the Rose be served with spicy foods. 

I also tried this wine as a 'spritzer' by mixing two thirds of a glass of Rose with sparkling water. Not only does this cut down your calories even more but it becomes a very light and refreshing drink that could be served at parties, for example. 

I much preferred the fizz, but everyone has their own preferences. The only recommendation I would make for everyone is that this wine be served very cold, so leave it in the fridge for a good few hours before cracking it open. 

Eisberg also offer white wines, Reisling and Chardonnay; and also a red Cabernet Sauvingon. 
I will review these wines on this page in the next week or so!
