Is there alcohol in non alcoholic wine?
Before we dive into the list of the top red and white non alcoholic wine for 2021. First it is important to understand how much alcohol there actually is in non alcoholic wine?
- Each wine comes in at less than 0.5% ABV (alcohol by volume). This is about the same as an overripe banana and nowhere near enough to make you drunk.
- Just be wary that it's possible the taste and smell of non-alcoholic wine – including 0% ABV wine – can provide stimulatory cues that encourage some people to crave standard alcoholic wine and champagne.
- This means non-alcoholic wine isn't suitable for everyone who’s giving up alcohol.

The bottle design has an image of the idyllic vineyard, ensuring a conventional and convincing look.
