If you have walked through your local supermarket lately you would have likely come across the McGuigan Zero range living down the drinks aisle. After having tried the range when I first found non alcohol wine, I have recently revised the suite of McGuigan Zero offerings.
The McGuigan Zero range of non-alcoholic wine is made by fourth-generation South Australian winemakers McGuigan. The range includes a Zero Sparkling, Zero Rose, Zero Shiraz, Zero Chardonnay; and Zero Sauvignon Blanc. All of which are made with South Australian grown grape varieties.

Having tried the range of zero alcohol wines from the team, the Zero Alcohol Sparkling seems to be the pick of the bunch for my taste buds that prefer dryer and bigger wines.

With a view that ‘Life’s complicated – enjoying wine shouldn’t be’, embedded in the way McGuigan operates. It is no surprise that McGuigan Zero alcohol wines were an early bird, disruptor, and first mover on the alcohol free wine scene.
Experienced in Zero Alcohol Wine Options.
Just like the wines produced by the South Australian outfit, McGuigan’s expertise in producing low alcohol and zero alcohol wines has grown and been developed and improved over time.
With over 15 years of experience in making zero alcohol wine / low alcohol wine – the concept behind how the wines are created is truly tried and tested:
- Task winemakers with crafting the wine to its heritage and style.
- Build it out with the quality expected of one of the world’s best winemakers.
- Use the smarts, understanding, and latest technology that come with over 100 years of experience to draw out the alcohol from the expertly crafted wine.
While the process might seem simple to the eye, the (Australian created) spinning cone technology employed in the process by McGuigan is far from it. A high-level look at spinning cone technology can be found here.
