Thanks to my Spanish background, the love of good food and wine is part of my DNA. And, living in Sydney I have been lucky to enjoy the wonderful produce and taste some of the great wines we produce in this country.
Like many of my friends I’m happy to admit that I’ve over-indulged from time to time. No problem, all part of the journey. But now with a 4-year old, two teenagers and a love of the surf, nursing a weekend hangover is no longer an option. So, for a few years I’ve been trying to find an alternative that will allow me to still enjoy the wonderful taste of wine while I grab some of the benefits from eliminating alcohol from my daily diet.
First I tried out a ‘Dry July’ just to see if I could do it. Along the way I discovered a few zero alcohol beers I liked, but zero alcohol wine just didn’t make the cut. Frankly at best it tasted like fruit juice. Lacking body and intensity, it was hardly a worthy accompaniment for a thick-cut piece of barbecued rump. At the time I thought to myself,
“if only there were amazing non alcoholic reds, whites and sparklings that tasted as good as those with alcohol.”
Well now the good news.
On a trip back to Spain in 2018 I found just that. Here are non-alcoholic wines with real texture and depth of flavour. Wines that can hold their own with the heartiest roast or most delicate plate of grilled fish. Non-alcoholic wines to enjoy and savour like never before. You can drink them all the time, or just from time to time. What ever your preference, if you’re looking for true flavour I can guarantee that VinZero is the real thing.

I want to help educate people that there are options when it comes to drinking and socilaising. That people can enjoy full flavoured drinks and feel part of. To be able to have a favourite red to take to your favourite steakhouse, or the tastiest sparkling on the planet, at your next celebration and still drive home. To be able to wake up at 5am for your morning walk or sunrise surf and be at your full potential.
