How does it taste?

Expect delicate aromas of crushed blackberry and wild herbs in this alcohol-removed Merlot. Crushed red berries and plum offset by toasted oak on the palate combine to give a light and refreshing option with classic structure and fine, powdery tannins on the finish

But is it wine?!

We want our non-alcoholic options to give you everything you’d expect from a premium New Zealand wine. So we go through the entire winemaking process, before we gently remove the alcohol. Here's how we make alcohol-removed wine.

Step One

We make a delicious, full-strength New Zealand Merlot with the classic flavours we know and love.

Step Two

We use innovative spinning cone technology to gently distill the wine into layers:



Step Three

We carefully collect that delicate Merlot aroma and add it back into the body of the wine (sans alcohol!)

Step Four

We add just a touch of premium grape juice to round out the final blend. There you have it! Delish.

100% guilt-free.

At just 18 calories per 100ml, a glass of Giesen 0% - New Zealand Merlot has 70% less calories than a 12.5% alc/vol wine and over 50% less sugar than many fruit juices. How’s that for a bonus?!

Our Giesen 0% fans have told us they love the ability to reduce their alcohol intake when they're looking after their wellbeing, sober driving, cutting down on sugar, managing health problems, moderating, or even just have a big day planned the next day!

Enjoy over a platter with friends, a home-cooked meal with family, or even at your local bar on date night (if they're clever enough to stock it!)

Serve this no-alcohol option at your next event to enjoy a glass of wine without the after-effects.
