Trailblazing Alcohol-Free Wine Alternatives
Guided by our brand mission to craft extraordinary experiences that are warm and welcoming to all, several years ago, we witnessed a gap in the market for well-crafted low-to-no alcohol wine options that did not compromise on taste. We anticipated an increasing demand for ways to participate in the shared pleasure of drinking wine without the alcohol, whether for moderation, preference, or abstinence reasons. Our path into alcohol-free wine-style options followed the 2020 debut of our Piquette Family of artisan-infused light wines.
As aspirational leaders in the small world of ultra-premium Canadian wines, we saw a niche opportunity at the intersection of non-alcoholic and artisanal winemaking. We believe that our skillset in crafting terroir-driven wines positions us to offer a non-alcoholic experience that is both unmatched and presently non-existent. Tapping into the insights gained from working with grape skins, we applied these same principles in making Piquette Zero.
Not identical to wine, this new sensory experience is to be discovered for its own unique deliciousness.
