Award-winning Vinada wines has released its non-alcoholic European sparkling range in Australia.
The most awarded non-alc sparkling wine in the range – crowned Best Vegan Drink 2023 at The World Alcohol-Free Awards – is the Crispy Chardonnay, made with 100% Chardonnay grapes from the French wine-growing region of Languedoc. It is described as dry and medium bodied, with notes of apple and melon on the nose with a touch of citrus.
Vinada’s Tinteling Tempranillo Rosé is sourced from the popular Spanish wine-growing region of La Mancha. Awarded a Gold medal at The Gilbert & Gaillard International Wine Challenge 2023, this non-alc wine is ruby red in colour, with very fine bubbles and notes of berry and vanilla.
The final of the three varietals, Amazing Airén Gold, exhibits a lively yellow colour. It’s more subdued in aroma and
taste, but has an unexpected touch of spice. The Airén Gold was awarded a Bronze medal in the World Alcohol Free Awards 2023, in third place after Vinada’s Crispy Chardonnay and Tinteling Tempranillo.
President of Sommeliers Australia Sarah Andrew said: “What is most exciting is the quality and range of beverages now available and this goes far beyond just flavour.
“As those who are playing in this space are very quickly becoming the diners who decide where they, friends and families dine, this is an increasingly important category. Every celebration deserves a good sparkling wine and Vinada ticks all of these boxes, which is why it is in my fridge ready to go for any opportunity.”
Founder of alcohol-free beverage distributor VinZero, Paul Legaz, said: “Sourcing and distributing the best selection of non-alcoholic beverages from around the globe has long been written into our DNA, and we’re so thrilled to be able to welcome Vinada® into the acclaimed VinZero portfolio.
“They’ve garnered many notable accolades in recent years for their unwavering dedication to flavour and it’s high
time Australian consumers got their hands on these popular sparkling wines. We’re so glad to see the rise in the
non-alc market, as our number one priority has always been inclusivity in this space. Vinada® is the perfect non-alc
drink for socialising sober and we’re very excited to see the response.”
The Vinada range is available at Dan Murphy’s, Liquorland, First Choice Liquor, Woolworths Metro, Harris Farm, WHSmith, Free Spirit Drink Co, Sip & Enjoy, Tabooze and Sip Zero.
