Hop over to “Our Story” + watch the video.
Do you use additives?
We make use of additives that you would use in any normal winemaking process:
Sulfur dioxide – preservative.
CMC – prevents tartrate crystals forming, colloidal stability.
Gumarabic - adds to mouthfeel and colloidal stability.
Mannoproteins – mouthfeel, and has a big influence on the bubbles.
Glycerol – only in a small percentage (this is allowed by our wine law in the low and no category), adds sweetness, and colloidal stability.
Grape derived sugars.
American and French Oak on certain products.
We do not make use of any natural or artificial derived flavours, and only use what we can harness from the grape/wine that we work with.
How does the calorie count in non-alc wines compare with alcoholic wines?
Calories are calculated the same as within any other product, maybe just a bit simpler. As there is no conversion needed from alcohol. So only from the residual and added sugar. Hop over to our Discover our wines for specific metrics.
Can I drink Lautus Wines wine while pregnant?
Check with your healthcare provider.
Do you have a tasting room?
We do not have a tasting room. We are however more than happy to host a tasting at your venue. Simply fill out our contact form and we’ll be in touch.
Is it like grape juice?
No, de-alcoholised wine gets made using standard winemaking practices - the wine is fermented, allowing it to develop the complex flavours wine drinkers enjoy. Then, two weeks before bottling, we remove the alcohol with spinning-cone technology, leaving the complex premium quality wine without the alcohol content. Whereas grape juice is about capturing the natural flavour of the grapes from the moment they're crushed.
Has your wine won any awards?
We tend not to enter, but will enter selectively going forward.
How much is 0.5% alcohol?
Less than a fruit juice you’ve left open in your fridge for 3 days, kombucha or an overripe banana.
Will de-alcoholised wine affect me like alcoholic wine?
Not at all, all the negative effects of wine come from the alcohol. Not only will you avoid a hangover, you’ll also avoid the skin drying effects of alcohol, and get a good night’s sleep.
What impact does your unique terroir have on each wine?and why do you source grapes from the different regions and what flavour notes do they bring to the wine?
