There was an alcoholic seltzer craze, but now a new trend is on the rise: the mocktail! Many attribute this shift to the health-conscious mindset of Gen Z, while others believe people want to partake in the social event of drinking without the side effects. When you hear “mocktail,” you might imagine your local bartender tossing in some juices and calling it a night, but mocktails are now crafted with intention, love, and creativity.
Wölffer Estate has recently introduced their Verjus-Made Mocktails, blending the delightful tang of unripe grapes with invigorating flavors to create the ultimate refreshing mocktail experience. It is the perfect companion for a game night with friends or a cozy evening curled up with a good book.
The Red Verjus is meticulously crafted from Wölffer’s fine merlot grapes, offering a harmonious balance between lively, crisp acidity and fruit-forward flavors. Its long, playful finish features fresh berry character, fine acidity, and minerality, making it an excellent choice for a mocktail.
On the other hand, the White Verjus is exceptionally gentle and refreshing, ideal for sipping as a spritzer or standing alone as the star ingredient in your mocktail.
Wölffer’s Spring in a Bottle is their first non-alcoholic sparkling wine from a partnership with the Strauch Family and their certified organic farmed vineyard. This blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Saint Laurent, and Dornfelder— all organically grown— boasts a stunning bright light rose color. The mouth-feel is vibrant and refreshing, perfectly balanced with lovely fruit notes of fresh peach and citrus, accompanied by wonderful acidity and good minerality.
Whether you choose to incorporate these wines into your cocktails or savor them as standalone mocktails, they are a delightful addition to any occasion. Here’s to the mocktail craze!
