Wine Health with Bex Bishop, Winemaker at BX of Napa

pregnancy

I ask: Zero Alcohol or Less Alcohol?


Bex notes:  Is wine really wine if there is NO alcohol? The stuff I've tried is terrible, just serve me Welchs grape juice instead please! Obviously I understand the call for less alcohol in wines, from pregnancy to driving to weight, but alcohol is actually an essential ingredient contributing to the HEALTHY aspects of wine. Of course this is my blog and therefore my plug for my HALF ALCOHOL wine, that actually tastes good. Everything is better in moderation they say! Don't throw the baby (alcohol) out with the wine. Anyway, here is an article touting zero alcohol wine, just to share fair:

Pregnant women are raising their glasses to alcohol-free wine.The growing trend is making waves throughout the world, including Muslim nations and now also Australia and New Zealand.It's also being touted as a positive way to combat New Zealand's binge drinking culture. And pregnant women, designated drivers, athletes, and even children are among fans.International Aotearoa owner Raylene O'Connor began importing alcohol-free wines after tiring of juice and fizzy drink at social occasions."I live in North Canterbury and there's no taxis here. I was always the sober driver," she said.
