{news} Van Loveren’s Almost Zero range is the answer to Dry January

Almost Zero by Van Loveren Family Vineyards has taken South Africa by storm. The wine-like drink with almost no alcohol is made up of the popular Wonderful White, Ravishing Rosé and Radiant Red.

Dry January all year long!

Although we’re almost half way into January there is no hard and fast rule that ‘Dry January’ is only for the month in question. Why not set aside one (or even two) week a month where you socialise without alcohol – even a Dry Monday to Thursday works. Or better yet swap your regular drink for the delicious Almost Zero. The Wonderful White, Ravishing Rosé and Radiant Red are great substitutes for wine. Don’t go at it alone and get friends to join you in leading a healthier (and ‘Almost Zero’ lifestyle), or even better rope them in to join you in a new hobby or sport activity.

Did you know?

And did you know that this fabulous wine-like range is also low in kilojoules, which makes for the perfect wine to enjoy with your salad or grilled fish and vegetables, whilst trying to shed the holiday weight. Every glass has 75% less kilojoules than normal, allowing you to be social to your heart’s content. This means that one entire bottle of Almost Zero has the same kilojoules as just one glass of regular wine.

Furthermore, there’s only 2.2g/100g of sugar and 4.2g/100g of carbohydrates in each bottle. Ten glasses of Almost Zero has the same sugar as one glass of commercial orange juice.

Banting-friendly, Almost Zero is the ideal alternative whether you’re cutting back or going dry. It’s perfect for business lunches, sport enthusiast, teetotalers.

The range

Ravishing Rosé shows all the divine colours of the traditional favourite with ever-present flavours of Turkish delight. Enjoy as a healthy aperitif or with oriental dishes, desserts and pizza. Its sibling Radiant Red is fruit-forward with notes of ripe mulberry prominent on the palate. It’s also great as an aperitif or with pasta, meat dishes and pizza. The Wonderful White is notable for its delicate flavours of apple, citrus and tropical fruit with a crisp and lingering after-taste It’s fabulous on its own or with salad, sushi and summer fare.

From bottle to glass, Almost Zero looks like wine and tastes like wine but has less than 0,4% alcohol. The alcohol in one glass of wine is therefore equivalent to 38 glasses of Almost Zero.

The near-absence of alcohol means by law it can’t be called wine, although this de-alcoholised wonder begins life as such. To remove the alcohol, it is gently spun, allowing the wine to spread thinly across steel cones and the alcohol to evaporate.

High precision ensures that what’s left is distinctive wine body, colour and flavour. Except now with close to all the alcohol gone, Almost Zero is the healthier option with the same great taste.
