What is low alcohol wine?

The average bottle of wine has between 12 and 15% ABV. Lower alcohol wines are usually 12% ABV or lower, ideal for those who want lighter flavours or just want to reduce the amount of alcohol they consume. Even though low alcohol wine contains a lower alcohol content, it’s no less tasteful or fragrant.

You can read more about low-alcohol and alcohol-free wines in our Guide to Organic Alcohol-Free Wine.

Is low alcohol wine healthy?

A report by Wine Intelligence found that an increased focus on wellness and working to sustain a healthier lifestyle in recent times has led to at least one-third of wine drinkers moderating their consumption. Drinking low-alcohol or alcohol-free wine can help improve sleep quality, weight management and help with your immune response.

What is the difference between low-alcohol wine and alcohol-free wine?

Legally, wine needs to have a minimum alcohol content of 1.2% ABV or more, and to be classed as alcohol-free, will have 0.05% ABV or less, whereas low alcohol wines are all 12% ABV or lower. If you’re looking for alcohol-free wines, we do recommend the Opia range or our Pri Seccos.

Our recommended organic low alcohol wines

There are many organic low-alcohol wines to choose from! For whites, our Wild Thing Sauvignon Blanc (11.5%) is a popular choice. For those who like wine on the sweeter side, we also recommend Timo Dienhart’s Riesling Kabinett Sonnenuhr (8.5%).

For red, our Organic Roots Rosso is one of our lightest reds at 12%, or Mont’albano Refosco / Merlot (12.5%) is also a delicious and smooth organic red wine. Do remember, however, that the same wines in different vintages can vary in alcohol levels, because of climatic and winemaking conditions.
