HEALTH

Non-alcoholic red wine retains the same polyphenols and flavonoids from grape skins that, in general, supplies red wine with its “antioxidant” power, with the added advantage of avoiding the side effects of excess alcohol.
Although in Spain this product is still relatively unknown, it is likely that non-alcoholic wines will be readily associated as a “social drink” in the same way that alcohol-free beer has already achieved that role in a relatively short time.
Our objective is not to compete with traditional wines, but simply to complement the wine industry.
As wine enthusiasts we know how to enjoy its pleasures, but at the same time also know that there are many occasions when we must avoid it precisely due to its alcohol content.

WINE AND HEALTH.


Recently, many studies have shown that the moderate consumption of red wine is healthy and offers many benefits; it is accepted that a glass of red wine a day helps the cardiovascular system.
The polyphenol and vitamin contents combat aging and aid in keeping skin healthier and smoother. Likewise, it also decreases blood insulin levels, increases estrogen levels, and improves blood circulation in the brain.
Red wine contains flavonoids and anthocyanidins, and these would be the factors that contribute to its antioxidant power. Flavonoids have very useful characteristics:
- Make bad cholesterol (LDL) more innocuous by preventing its oxidation.
- Prevent the clumping together of blood platelets, thereby preventing the forming of clots.
- Decrease inflammation.
Tannins are part of the polyphenols found in grape skin and are recognized by a blotting taste in the mouth. Not all wines have the same amount of tannins, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Malbec, Merlot, and Pinot Noir varieties are the ones with the highest tannin concentrations. The tannin content of the wine, produces more good cholesterol, or HDL, and serves as a cardio-protector, due to its high density.
Non-alcoholic red wine retains all the phenolic elements that ensures these benefits, with the added advantage of avoiding the negative effects of the excess alcohol.

DISAVANTAGES OF ALCOHOL

The only disadvantages of red wine are precisely due to its alcohol content. Alcohol causes many problems on several levels:
- Incompatible with driving.
- Causes lack of coordination, euphoria, aggressiveness.
- Contraindicated during pregnancy and lactation.

Additionally, prolonged use may result in:
- Tachycardia, mood swings, impotence.
- Risk of chronic liver disease.
- Risk of head, neck, stomach, and breast cancer.

NON-ALCOHOLIC WINE

In a society that is becoming increasingly health conscious and that is significantly reducing the consumption of alcohol, non-alcoholic wines are aimed for the wine drinker who appreciates all the flavour and complexity of the best wines, but is looking for an alternative without alcohol as a healthy option.
Those that abstain for religious reasons, dieters, drivers, pregnant and lactating women or anyone with some kind of alcohol restriction can enjoy non-alcoholic wine as an excellent alternative for meals, professional events, and social celebrations.
