I’m glad to report that ‘Dry January’ and ‘Januworry’ have absolutely no power on me thanks to Robertson Winery! They have just introduced a new non-alcoholic and DRY sparkling wine at a super price of just R50 a bottle!
Not that the month of January stopped us from drinking wine or worrying about cash flow; but this is definitely a great option for being part of the ‘Dry Januworry” trend. Even if it is just because you want to keep up with appearances, haha!
In all seriousness; this trend towards a healthier lifestyle and the stricter enforcement of drinking and driving laws are noted!
Enter the ‘mindful drinking’ movement started by millennials! This global trend of choosing alcohol-free or low-alcohol drinks for health and social reasons is beginning to become mainstream.
Robertson Winery, true to its reputation for pioneering, innovation and forward-thinking, launched its first two non-alcoholic sparkling wines in 2012. The wines were sweet and it is super that they are adding a DRY option too.
How is it made?
The grapes are grown in the Robertson Winery’s lime-rich soil which produces elegant sparkling wines with finesse. The alcohol in this wine has been carefully removed to preserve the fruity aromas and vibrant flavours. This results in a delightfully dry wine with a vivacious sparkle! Enjoy gorgeous notes of pear and mandarin accompanied by hints of orange blossom and honeysuckle. YUMMY!
Refreshing and charmingly drinkable, serve well-chilled to keep the bubbles and flavours at their peak.
This dry and non-alcoholic bubbly is perfect for every occasion. Like poolside sipping, picnics, braais, sundowners at the beach, jovial chats around the table and partying with friends. Give it a try, and let me know what you think!
And the price?
Robertson Winery’s Range of Non-Alcoholic Sparkling Wines includes a Sweet Sparkling White, a Sweet Sparkling Pink and the new Dry Sparkling White. All three are widely available nationally and retail between R50 and R55 per bottle.
