The non-alcoholic Giesen 0% Pinot Gris was the last in the Giesen Zero wine range left for me to try, and I tell you, it has very quickly become a contender to be a favourite here at Tipple Zer, let’s get into why.
The Giesen Zero Pinot Gris is a brilliant crisp, fresh and near-perfect tasting non-alcoholic Pinot Gris scoring a 9.4/10. It provides a well-balanced profile that is acidic, slightly sweet and built around bright fruits of apple, pear and grape that ultimately give way to a quenching and refreshing finish.

What Does the Giesen 0% Pinot Gris Taste Like
They often say confidence is quiet, it doesn’t need to be brash or bold and instead, it focuses on bettering yesterday and committing to the cause. In the case of the Giesen 0% Pinot Gris (and the entire Zero range for that matter), this is absolutely true!
The flavour profile of the Giesen alcohol-free Pinot Gris is nothing short of remarkable. I honestly don’t know why I continue to be surprised after the success of the Sauvignon Blanc however this might just be the contender for my new favourite in the range.
With each pour of the Giesen 0% Pinot Gris, you’re going to find a straw-coloured wine with an abundance of flavour that comes with great body and length. Each glass is going to be made up of light and brilliantly balanced profile of:
- Fruits that include, apple, pear, melon and hints of floral grape
- A light fruity and honey-like sweetness that is well balanced by acidic sharpness and bite
- Crisp and fresh finish that perfectly rounds out the mouthful
I found myself transported back to the many days over the years that I’ve spent bottling white wine as the aroma and taste profile do so well at replicating the profile of traditional Pinot Gris.
On balance, what non-alcoholic wine like the Giesen 0% Pinot Gris lacks in sheen and weight from alcohol, it well and truly makes up for with flavour, brightness and acidic snap.
Giesen 0% Pinot Gris Stockists
The Giesen 0% Pinot Gris is a hard wine to track down, not because it is not widely stocked or available, but rather because it sells out so quickly. If you’ve followed the journey of the other wines in the Giesen Zero range this will be a familiar story!
However, if you are lucky enough to find it in stock at any of the retailers down below I’d highly recommend picking it up while you can to avoid missing out and being left waiting on the sidelines until another run hits stores, shelves and sites.

When to Drink the Zero Pinot Gris by Giesen
The bright and crisp profile is suited to be enjoyed on its own, with a platter of meats and fruits or my personal favourite paired with a light fish like a Hoki or Flounder, fresh greens and a polenta and grain base. If you’re looking down the carb train, I also have a bright and light citrus based crab linguini in my sights for this wine too.

The Round-Up: Final Thoughts
Giesen continues to raise the bar of non-alcoholic wine and with their alcohol-free Pinot Gris, has firmly cemented themselves as the market leader. This is a wine that I’m sure will sell out time and time again so if you’re interested in trying it, get your skates on and get yourself a couple of bottles.
I’m excited to start seeing more stock come online and this gets into more people’s glasses. A big thank you to Van at Sip and Enjoy down in Melbourne who had this in stock when I was looking for a bottle or two recently.
