Have you ever wondered how your glass of Sauvignon Blanc or Shiraz is actually made?
Winemakers around the world use a variety of techniques and technologies for producing modern wines, but at the end of the day the process is very similar. The only slight variation is that red and white wines are made using slightly different processes.
This is a simplified overview of the journey a grape takes from the vine, to your glass. We also detail the – Spinning Cone Column – process we use to make our Edenvale alcohol removed wines.
Our wines are produced using the most sophisticated and efficient methods of alcohol extraction, including the use of the Spinning Cone Column which has been customised for Edenvale production.
The customised Spinning Cone Column removes the alcohol from the base wine through a process of evaporation, whilst being careful to protect the delicate aromas and varietal integrity. The wine is refined, purified and then goes through a blending process to return flavour, aroma, volume and sweetness, creating an exceptional wine that is less than 0.5% alcohol by volume, and rich in antioxidants and vitamins.
