Six alcohol-free sparkling wines

If you like a glass of celebratory bubbles but you’re not drinking alcohol or cutting back, here are six of my favourite alcohol-free wines listed in alphabetical order:

Live Light has a Sparkling Rose and Sparkling White both of which I’ve enjoyed and have recently added a Sparkling Mango which I’m keen to try.

Noughty by Thomson & Scott have two great sparkling wines in their range – a Chardonnay and Rosé. 

Polka is made in South Australia and there are two sparklings to choose from – Sparkling Rosé and Lilly Pilly Cuvee. 

Plus Minus has a range of sparkling wines and also have mocktail recipes on their site which may provide you with some festive inspiration.

Vinada Tinteling Tempranillo Rosé is my favourite but they also do a Sparkling Chardonnay and Sparkling Airen.

Wolf Blass Sparkling Cuvee is part of the wine-maker’s Zero range of alcohol-free wines.

If alcohol-free sparkling wines are not your preference, I recently posted about my six-favourite alcohol-free drinks which includes beers, ciders, spirits and wines.

Note: Some people find alcohol-free versions of wine, beers and spirits triggering so, if that’s the case for you, it is safer to choose something that doesn’t replicate an alcoholic drink.
