Ara Zero

Our Sauvignon Blanc
– with a twist 

There is no other wine on earth that tastes like Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough.  And if you still love the quality and fruit purity that Marlborough brings, we see no reason you should miss out while you’re skipping alcohol. 

We’ve crafted a crisp, dry, Sauvignon Blanc alternative – by using full-strength wine as our starting point. Once we distilled off the alcohol, we made sure that what was left behind was all flavour.

Crisp, fresh flavour. 

Expect classic Sauv aromas of blackcurrant with a hint of fresh herbs. Grapefruit and tropical notes with layers of passionfruit and pineapple on the palate. Just a touch of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc grape juice added in the final blending stage - to deliver that full, juicy mouthfeel that’s so often missing in non-alcoholic options. And a deliciously crisp, dry finish. 


We chalk that all up to a refreshing, low calorie, non-alcoholic wine. 

Enjoy to the full.

Don’t sacrifice an active lifestyle in exchange for a hangover. And don’t sacrifice taste for an active lifestyle.

We invite you to enjoy a classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc with your loved ones, even if you’ve got a big day ahead or an early start in the morning. Whether you plan on rock climbing or kid-wrangling, road tripping or trail running, you don’t have to miss out on relaxing over a glass with friends.

How we do it.

We’ve been making wine on the edge of the earth for almost two decades. In one of the most raw, rugged wine regions on the planet, our winemakers have become experts at crafting for quality, flavour intensity, and fruit purity. So it’s no surprise that these characters were also at the forefront of Ara Zero.

Behind the wine.

At Ara, we’re not about making sacrifices.

Some people will tell you that you can’t have a non-alcoholic wine that’s as enjoyable to drink as the real thing.

We think you can.

Presenting Ara Zero. A Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc with the alcohol removed – nothing lost.

How to taste.

Make sure your bottle is chilled before you pour yourself a glass. We recommend tasting Ara Zero before any full-strength alcohol and giving yourself a glass to get used to the unique, lighter style of alcohol-removed wine. Then enjoy, guilt-free – with 23 calories per 125ml serve, that’s half what you’d enjoy in most glasses of juice.

Tasting note

This refreshing alcohol-free wine shows classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc notes of tropical fruit and grapefruit. Layers of passionfruit and pineapple fill the palate, creating a delicious balance between fruit sweetness, juicy texture and a crisp, dry finish. Enjoy for its lighter style and low calories.


Marlborough’s dry 2020 vintage created a bounty of intense flavour and quality for our Wairau Valley vineyards. Harvest was  characterised by quality fruit with generous  aromatics, concentrated flavour, texture and lovely natural acidity. Grapes for this wine were carefully hand selected for picking in parcels at the perfect ripeness.


This wine was crafted to provide an alcohol-removed option that still exhibits typical Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc characteristics. We create premium, full-strength Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, before using advanced spinning cone technology to gently remove  the alcohol. The delicate aroma is collected and recombined with the wine to maintain its distinctive nose. . This results in a refreshing style of non-alcoholic wine with low calories.
