South Australian winery Sidewood has released its first zero-alcohol sparkling wine, which is made using certified sustainable fruit from the Adelaide Hills.

‘Nearly Naked’ has been stripped bare of its alcohol using spinning cone technology and Sidewood use the exact same fruit from its Estate vineyards as is used in its award-winning wines.

The grapes are crushed and fermented, then the alcohol is removed carefully to ensure that fresh aromas, flavours and mouthfeel remain in the finished product.

Owen Inglis, Owner and Vigneron, said: “We found there was no option for NOLO drinkers, who wanted a premium, quality, zero-alcohol wine. We wanted to make something we’d be happy drinking ourselves.”

Marketing Manager, Sam Evans added: “Brand, packaging and quality of liquid are extremely important factors for NOLO wines. Our team set out to give customers the most premium and quality experience as possible for a zero-alcohol wine, from popping a cork to taking your first mouthful.”

Nearly Naked Non-Vintage Sparkling is now available and Sidewood are hoping to release another product in the coming months.
