From the shimmering tanks at Monceau in Melbourne, comes our latest creation: Monte Stella, a modern non-alc alternative to sparkling wine. We sourced grapes from Box Grove Vineyard in northern Victoria, and blended them with organic tea for added tannins, before fermenting the juice with ultra-low-alcohol yeast cultures to create a hybrid-ferment that has all the character of a varietal wine, but less than 0.5% alcohol.
This isn’t like the strangely sweet de-alcoholised 0% wines you might have tried before. And we don’t use any weird additives, sulphites or “natural” flavours. Instead, we’ve been exploring the use of alternative cultures alongside wine grapes to produce a compelling option for a quaffable, refreshing and crisp sparkling drink.
