Tasting Notes

This non-alcoholic sparkling rosé is made entirely from pinot noir. The grapes macerate for 6 hours prior to pressing giving this a gorgeous pink hue. The sparkling nature of this wine balances out the residual sugar, making it appear even drier than it it is. Because of that, it's even more wine-like on the palate.

Staff Pick Notes

When I have occasion to drink a wine without alcohol, I am careful to choose only ones that are dealcoholized. Those are made as normal (going through yeast fermentation, aging, etc.) rather than some alcohol-free wines, which are often just unfermented grape juice. The Leitz sparkling rosé "Eins Zwei Zero" is dealcoholized. The result is a fabulous option for those looking for something besides Martinelli's to toast with. It is just a touch off dry, with delightful acidity. While it lacks the heat from alcohol, the mousse provides a delightful textural element. I’ve given this as a gift to two pregnant sisters who were delighted to have something festive and convincing to sip on during their baby showers. I’d call that a seal of approval!

The country's Rieslings have been prized worldwide for centuries, yet they have never quite caught on in the U.S.: this no doubt due to Germany’s arcane system of wine classification. The most useful words to know on German wine labels are “Kabinett,” which indicates an outstanding everyday wine, and “trocken,” which means...
