One of the original non-alcoholic wines coming out of Australia is Plus and Minus Wine.
Plus & Minus is a range of antioxidant rich Australian alcohol free wine, that includes a non-alcoholic Shiraz, Pinot Noir, Pinot Grigio, Rose and Prosecco. All Plus & Minus Wine delivers a quality synonymous with hand-made wine that has been crafted from premium dry-grown South Australian grapes and traditional winemaking techniques.
The Plus & Minus wine range is made up of six traditional core wines that include the:
- Plus & Minus Blanc de Blancs NV.
- Plus & Minus Pinot Grigio.
- Plus & Minus Rose.
- Plus & Minus Pinot Noir.
- Plus & Minus Shiraz.
- Plus & Minus Prosecco.
Crafted to bring you an accessible and antioxidant-rich non-alcoholic wine option, the range is designed to cover the ‘everyday’ drinking styles, tastes, and occasions.
Putting together reviews of the best non-alcoholic wine products is one of my favourite pieces of working on Tipple Zero. Having come from a winemaking background, I love to see what each wine on the market has to offer.
If you’re interested in reading a couple of Plus and Minus Wine review options, you need to check out the recent reviews I have written on the:
The Rose is a light flavoured, light-bodied and mineral profiled non-alcoholic rose option that has main notes of berries and apples and subtle tones of other fruits throughout each glass.
The Shiraz, on the other hand, is also a light take on red wine that presents more like a Pinot Noir given it brings a light body, soft texture and shorter depth of flavour to each glass.
Update: I’ve recently added in the Pinot Grigio review! While the reviews around the Pinot Noir, Sparkling and Prosecco are in the works! I’m always wanting to make sure you get the right steer on what is in each and every bottle so I’m pitching in for a few more bottles to save you buying something you won’t like!
With great distribution from the Fourth Wave Wine, buying from Plus and Minus wine stockists is becoming easier as awareness and interest grow in the non-alcoholic wine or alcohol-free wine category.
Plus and Minus Wine stockists sell the range for between $15 – $20 a bottle at many retails such as Brunswick Aces, Craft Zero, Liquorland and Sans Drinks, among a wide range of others. The links to some old favourites are all below for you to check the latest price.
As a general rule, the Plus and Minus wine range has 27.5 calories per 100ml and 3.55 grams of sugar per 100ml making it low sugar and low-calorie non-alcoholic wine for anyone looking to enjoy an alcohol-free range of wine without the sugar.
I have reviewed each of the calorie and sugar contents for each of the Plus and Minus range and listed them out below for you to review.
|Plus and Minus Wine||Calories per 100ml||Sugar per 100ml|
|Blanc de Blancs NV||31 cals||3 grams|
|Pinot Grigio||24 cals||3.9 grams|
|Rose||22 cals||1.9 grams|

Plus and Minus Wine is owned and made by Fourth Wave Wines, an Australian-based company that makes and globally distributes wine. With over 40 alcoholic and non-alcoholic wines in their portfolio and global distribution, Fourth Wave Wines are primed to deliver Plus and Minus wine to the world.
Beyond the Plus and Mins Wine option, the Fourth Wave Wines portfolio is made up of some well-known household names:
- ‘Little Giant’, ‘Elephant in the Room’, and ‘Hear No Evil’ – for those traditional alcoholic wine drinkers; and
- ‘Funky Monkey’ – for the non-alcoholic wine drinkers.
It is the deep expertise in the creation and distribution of alcoholic wine, that Fourth Wave Wine openly discuss as their key to success.
Resveratrol is an antioxidant that is found in red wine and comes from the skins of grapes and is found in the range of Plus and Minus Wine.
Research has found that Resveratrol has had positive effects on diseases:
- Cardiovascular and inflammatory diseases;
- Neurodegenerative diseases;
- Metabolic diseases; and
- Generally, age-linked diseases
The Plus and Minus Wine range is one that has a wine for every occasion. While the recent addition of the Prosecco is one that has given it a great boost, the composition of the range will likely see it coming in a close second to the non-alcoholic range from sister brand Funky Monkey which, in my opinion, carries a more authentic and wine like characteristics.
