Sauvignon Blanc

Our non-alcoholic Sauvignon Blanc is a light and refreshing wine with strong citrus notes, delicate aromas of kiwi and passionfruit, and a touch of lemongrass. Perfectly paired with chicken, seafood, or spring vegetables.

Non-alcoholic wine that tastes so real you still need to be 21 to enter.
