I like a drink on occasions and I love a glass of wine – not quite as much as I love a gin and tonic but I love a glass of wine to accompany a meal. There are times when I would have loved a glass of wine but wouldn’t have felt comfortable having one – Throughout pregnancy, in the first few months of breastfeeding with the constant feeds and the times when Hubby is on a night shift where we have a lovely meal but he has to go to work a couple of hours later – His work have a zero alcohol policy so he can’t have a glass before work – I wouldn’t have a glass of wine if he wasn’t able to have a glass too – That’s just the way I am!
Eisberg recently sent us a bottle of their alcohol free Chardonnay to try and it immediately fitted into our lifestyle – Hubby and I shared the bottle over dinner before one of his night shifts. The Eisberg non alcoho
I presumed that Eisberg alcohol free wine would just be made without the alcohol (No idea on the wine making process!) but infact Eisberg non alcoholic wine has the alcohol removed from it. I thought it would taste just like wine but it was obvious from the first sip that there was no alcohol in it – I now know that when I drink wine usually what I am tasting is the alcohol content!
Eisberg non alcoholic wine comes in four varieties – A refreshingly aromatic Riesling, a crisp Chardonnay, a juicy succulent Rosé and a fruity red Cabernet Sauvignon. We opted for the Chardonnay as it’s the wine we usually choose to drink so we would be able to compare it better than trying one of the other varieties.
One of the great things about Eisberg non alcoholic wine is that it is only 34 calories per 125 ml glass, making it a great alternative to standard wine at around a third of the calorie content – The weight watcher in me loved finding that out!
The Eisberg non alcoholic wine refreshing and definitely a great alternative to wine if you’re not drinking for one reason or another. I don’t think it would ever take the place of normal wine for me but there are definitely times when I could see myself drinking Eisberg non alcoholic wine in the future.
Eisberg non alcoholic wine is available from Asda and Waitrose with an RRP of £3.50
Disclosure: I was sent the above bottle of wine for the purpose of this review however all opinions are my own.
