Learn All About Dealcoholized Wine
If you've been looking for a wine that won't get you drunk, then the news is good: there are plenty of options to be found!
What is it?
Alcohol-free wine is made from grapes, just like regular wine. It's also produced using the same fermentation process that turns grape juice into wine, which means it contains all of the same nutrients found in traditional wines. The only difference is that alcohol-free wine doesn't contain any alcohol.
How is it made?
To make dealcoholized wine, the alcohol must be removed from the wine by a process called distillation. This is accomplished by heating the wine and then collecting the resulting vapour at various temperatures to create an ethanol-free liquid. This can be done a number of ways, but ideally involves adding water to dilute any remaining alcohol while also solidifying it into a more palatable form (vapour has no flavour).
The most common method of removing alcohol from wine is through vacuum distillation, which relies on boiling points being higher than ambient pressures. As such, when you heat liquid under low pressure (as in our case), it evaporates more quickly than if you were heating at normal atmospheric pressure because there’s less resistance to get out of your way as it rises up through your still head into your condenser coils or tubes where things cool down again before returning back down into another container where all this magic happens over and over again until all that remains is pure ethanol free goodness!
What are the benefits of drinking dealcoholized wine?
There are many benefits to drinking dealcoholized wines. First of all, they are low in calories, sugar and alcohol content. This means less chance of gaining weight or getting a hangover. In addition, if you drink dealcoholized wines responsibly, there is less risk of developing an addiction to alcohol or getting a DUI (driving under the influence).
In summary: Dealcoholized wine offers all the taste pleasures but with fewer health risks than regular red wine.
Where can I buy it?
Wine can be alcohol-free.
If you’re like me, you might have thought that wine was a beverage made from fermented grapes. In fact, it is! The process of turning grape juice into alcoholic wine involves anaerobic fermentation—the breakdown of sugar by yeast in the absence of oxygen. This reaction produces ethanol (ethyl alcohol) and carbon dioxide as byproducts.
Alcohol-free wines are produced by removing most of the alcohol from traditionally made wines but leaving some residual sweetness in the final product.
