Premium Grape Sourcing
We start with grapes harvested from premium regions in California. Close proximity to the Pacific Ocean helps create the ideal climate for grape growing. Cool nights and warm days produce wines with vibrant complexity and crisp acids. The standard for these wines is incredibly high because we only use wines that can maintain their flavor and charm through de-alcoholization.
What’s the difference between wine and grape juice? Fermentation. Our grapes go through this same essential process responsible for complex flavor and aroma. Without fermentation there is no wine.
Using cutting-edge spinning cone column technology, we are able to delicately remove the alcohol while maintaining the wine’s natural essence and aromatics.
Time to blend. With careful chemistry and an artistic approach, our wine team creates the final composition to round out the palette and elevate your glass. Lab tested at multiple stops along the way, the result is a beautifully balanced, non-alcoholic wine made with wellness in mind.
How It’s Made Matters
Surely partners with select vineyards that produce premium grapes using sustainable farming practices. This means:
• Minimal pesticides and integrated pest management systems wherever possible
• No genetically modified organisms
• Preserving areas of vineyard for native flora and fauna biodiversity
• Efficient drip irrigation schedules
These practices create a natural balance between the soil and the vineyard. It’s a difference you can taste today. And an investment in the vineyards of tomorrow.

Crafted With Your Wellness In Mind
Winemaking is a delicate balance of three main components: alcohol, sugar and acid. Without the alcohol, wine has less viscosity and becomes more fruit and acid forward. We add sugar from real fruit juice to maintain the natural acidity in the wines we source.
A complex wine delivered with more finesse at the same level of sophistication. A craft taste profile you can’t get anywhere else for drinkers and non-drinkers alike. Made for happier hours.
