11 Best Non-Alcoholic Wines | Man of Many

When it comes to Man of Many’s list of the best non-alcoholic wine money can buy, it goes without saying that expertise is key. While we’ve tasted every wine on this list, we’ve also turned to the wider public for their overall ratings. Our list takes into account three major perspectives to determine the overall rating. In addition to our own opinions, we take into account reviews via alcohol retailer Dan Murphys and the Australian non-alcoholic drinks retailers Sans Drinks and Craft Zero. We then collate the information together and measure the wines via overall flavour profile, reader ratings and commercial availability, meaning one-off special editions aren’t likely to top the list.

Best Non-alcoholic Wines

1. NON

NON has some of the best non-alcoholic wines out there, with a massive range of delicious, flavour-filled drops. We love the unique flavours the brand has on offer, featuring everything from tea, native plants, herbs and fruits. NON is all about using natural ingredients as a way of redefining the wine experience, and with no alcohol wine that tastes this good, we’re happy to be a part of it.

2. Monceau

This brewery from Brunswick sure knows what’s up when it comes to crafting natural, healthy, delicious drops, without alcohol. Monceau’s team uses low-intervention fermentations, coming up with innovative, natural methods to create drinks that are naturally ultra-low alcoholic or non-alcoholic. Their wines contain no sweeteners, artificial carbonation or flavours, and they favour the pet nat varieties – their mandarin pet nat kombucha is seriously out of this world.

3. Plus & Minus

We can guarantee you’ve seen these wines at your local bottle-o, and rightfully so – they’re widely available because non-alcoholic wine fans simply can’t get enough of them, and neither can we. Plus & Minus wines are known for how close they taste to the real deal. They’re also the best choice if you’re looking for traditional wines, with a pinot noir, shiraz, rosé or pinot grigio on offer.

4. McGuigan

Another popular brand that’s regularly stocked in bottle shops, McGuigan has been much-loved by Aussies for years and now has a zero range, which should help Dry July participants hang on just a few days longer. Heralding from the hills of the Hunter Valley, McGuigan wines are known for their rich, full-bodied flavour. Offering a huge range that will accommodate any palette, you’re sure to find red, sparkling, rosé, or white non-alcoholic wine to suit yours.

5. Lyre’s Classico Grande

Lyre’s is a legend in the world of all things non-alcoholic. It has a stellar range of non-alcoholic spirits, and its alcohol-free wine is no exception. The Classico Grande is an Italian-style, sparkling wine with delicious aromas of fresh peach, melon, and granny smith apple with a suitably dry finish. Now you can enjoy an Aperol spritz, without the alcohol!


Based in South Australia, NEWBLOOD is a newcomer to the world of non-alcoholic wine. It uses a unique triple distillation process that de-alcoholises its wine, resulting in a delicious drop that manages to capture the characteristics associated with a traditional drop. The NEWBLOOD team starts by leaving the grapes on the vine a little longer to ensure the end product is bursting with the flavour expected of high-quality wine before starting the distillation process. Choose from a shiraz, chardonnay and rosé.

7. POLKA De-Alc Wine

The team at POLKA De-Alc Wine like to do things a little differently, which is why we love their wines. They make refreshing, low-calorie sparkling wine by using real wine, paired with a delicate low-temperature distillation to remove the alcohol. The end result is sparkling that tastes so close to alcoholic sparkling wine that you truly wouldn’t ever guess. On offer is a traditional sparkling as well as a sparkling rosé.

8. Le Petit Chavin

If you love French wine, then Le Petit Chavin is one of the best non-alcoholic wines for you. Giving off all those Mediterranean feels, Le Petit Chavin is a blend of wines from the South of France, enhanced by delicious aromas, freshness and a smooth structure. The range includes chardonnay, merlot and rosé. The brand’s wines are also all halal-friendly.


Offering another alternative to sparkling wine along with a non-alcoholic rosé, TOST offers two of the most delicious drops you’ll ever taste. The brand’s wines are born from natural ingredients, are low in calories, refreshingly dry and not too sweet. TOST has achieved this by bringing together a killer team of beverage and culinary experts to help recreate the characteristics found only in alcoholic beverages.

10. Giesen 0%

These outstanding winemakers from New Zealand have almost every wine under the sun in a delicious, non-alcoholic version. Capturing everything we love about New Zealand wines, Giesen is a family-owned operation and the proud owner of the world’s first alcohol-removed Marlborough sauvignon blanc. Plus, Giesen wines are all low in calories, sugar-free and just as aromatically expressive, crisp, and refreshing as the alcoholic wine you already know and love.

11. Maggie Beer

Yes, you read the correctly – the legendary chef, food author and restauranteur herself, Maggie Beer, also has a range of non-alcoholic wines, just to add one more thing to her list of accomplishments. What can’t this lady do? Maggie Beer’s range has two drops – Maggie’s Sparkling Ruby Cabernet and Sparkling Chardonnay – with the Ruby Cabernet being our pick of the bunch. Both wines capture a sweeter taste and offer the perfect accompaniment to any Beer-inspired meal.
Non-alcohol wine is wine, without alcohol. But what does that actually mean?

What is Non-Alcoholic Wine?

Low-alcohol and non-alcoholic wine follow a similar fermentation process to its alcoholic counterpart. The difference is, that zero-alc wine removes the alcohol content from the fermented juice. The tricky part comes in doing this without impairing the taste, mouthfeel and quality of the beverage.

How is it made?

There are several health benefits when it comes to non-alcoholic wine thanks to the zero alcohol content, which deters the depressant effects of alcohol and therefore leads to a healthier lifestyle overall. As an extension of this, zero-alc wine may lead to lower blood pressure, is good for weight loss and you will also get much better sleep than if you were consuming alcoholic wine.

Is it good for you?

Most non-alcoholic wine tastes pretty similar to the real deal. This is because they both go through the same vinification process as regular wine, so zero wines can have much the same flavours, aromas, dryness, tastes and mouthfeel as alcoholic wine. Sometimes non-alcoholic wine may taste more fruity and fizzy, as more of these notes are added in to replace the alcohol content.
