When I was pregnant with Toddler H, I wasn’t pregnant over Christmas or New Year, only over my birthday in June. I didn’t miss wine at all and I didn’t remotely want any. I didn’t have even a vague thought of “that looks like a nice glass of wine.” We attended several weddings and I didn’t even want a sip of Champagne or Bucks Fizz. Of course NHS guidelines suggest a low limit is safe, but not to me, I was absolutely repulsed by even the thought of the taste of wine. This time however, maybe it’s second child syndrome starting already, or just the fact that this pregnancy is so different, but a few of weeks ago my mum had a glass of lovely chilled white wine in our old local pub and I thought it looked delicious. Lovely chilled wine that I know the taste of so well. I wasn’t tempted enough to try a sip, however with Christmas approaching, I didn’t want to be drinking fruity Schlor, squash or cordials, so I sought out he Internet forums for advice on non-alcoholic wines. Sainsburys and Marks and Spencers came out tops. So, along with our Sainsburys turkey I picked up a red and white non-alcoholic wine, along with a non-alcoholic sparkling wine (contains 0.05% alcohol).
We cracked open the white non-alcoholic wine first, and I must say I was very impressed. It’s fruity and actually has a change in taste becoming slightly dry, opposed to more fruity like Schlor. In fact it didn’t resemble Schlor in the slightest. Hubby was also impressed. I’ll definitely buy this again, it’s close enough to a fruity wine (I prefer a Roija or Pinot Grigio), but has a taste that makes you sip it opposed to take a huge gulp which you then regret!
We haven’t tried the red yet, but yesterday, on Christmas Day we opened the non-alcoholic sparkling wine and it was perfect. Fizzy, and sip-able, slightly fruity, slightly dry and not in the least like a fizzy drink or fizzy Schlor. It was the prefect drink for Christmas, New Year, and of course Friday night ?
I thoroughly recommend anyone who’s pregnant try these non-alcoholic wines from Sainsburys. They’re only ?2.50 a bottle, so nice and cheap, and very good imitations.
Have pregnancy ladies, and to any hubby’s or boyfriend’s reading… Your other half might appreciate this present if she’s pregnant (or breast feeding),
Did you find any non-alcoholic wines that you’d recommend? I don’t like or drink beer, so if you have any non-alcoholic beer recommendations, pop them in a comment and I’ll collate them too!?
