FAQ

GENERAL

q1:Where can I purchase Sovi?

Sovi is available through our website, you can shop here. We are also available in select in-store and online locations across the US and Canada. If you are a retailer, restaurant or bar that wants to sell Sovi, please email us at wholesale@drinksovi.com

q2:What is Sovi?

Sovi is alcohol-removed wine. We start with real wine and then remove the alcohol using a technology called vacuum distillation, where the wine is heated to about 85 degrees to gently boil off the alcohol, while keeping intact the delicate flavors and aromas. You can read more about that here. The final product contains less than 0.5% ABV. We do not add any natural or artificial flavors.

q3:How much alcohol is in Sovi? Is it really non-alcoholic?

Sovi contains less than 0.5% alcohol by volume, which according to the FDA (US) means it is a non-alcoholic beverage. The actual alcohol content is 0.3%, tested by ETS, the leading wine analysis lab in Napa.

q4:Is it safe to drink Sovi while pregnant or breastfeeding?

Congratulations on the new addition to your family! We recommend that expecting and breastfeeding mothers consult their physician with any concerns about consuming Sovi.

q5:Can people under the age of 21 drink Sovi?

Sovi is less than 0.5% alcohol by volume, which means it is classified as a non-alcoholic beverage in the US. However, laws can vary by state and we do not encourage people under the age of 21 to drink Sovi.

q6:Are you planning on releasing any additional wines?

At this point, we have Sparkling Rosé and are releasing a Red Blend in October. Stay tuned for news on additional wines coming later this year!

PRODUCT

q1:What are the ingredients?

There are 2 ingredients: sparkling dealcoholized wine and grape juice concentrate. We add a minimal amount of grape juice concentrate for balance (a not uncommon addition in winemaking). There is a small amount of sugar in the grape concentrate, but we do not add any additional sugars, sweeteners or natural or artificial flavors. Only wine and grapes here!

Just like most wines, Sovi contains sulfites. Sulfites are partially a natural occurrence of the fermentation process and partially added to preserve freshness in the winemaking process.

q2:Where is the wine from?

We partner with grape growers and winemakers in Clarksburg, California, about 40 miles east of Napa on the Sacramento River Delta for our Sparkling Rosé and Red Blend. You can read more about that here. The grapes are all certified sustainably grown.

q3:How is it only 25 calories?

Yes that’s right, 25 calories per can for our Sparkling Rosé and 20 calories for our Red Blend! In volume, 1 can is about 1.5 glasses of wine. By comparison, a typical glass of rosé wine has 125 calories. Why is Sovi so much lower? When we remove the alcohol, we remove all those alcohol calories! Plus our wine is a dry-style and very low in sugar, which means much fewer calories than other non-alcoholic wines on the market.

q4:Why cans? Are the cans BPA free?

We chose to put Sovi in cans because of their recyclability, convenience and single-serving size. Cans are much more eco-friendly and recyclable than traditional glass wine bottles. Plus Sovi is best when freshly opened and bubbly. 1 can is about 1.5 glasses, so you only have to open what you will drink. Enjoy it right out of a can, or pour it into a glass! We enjoy it both ways!

Our cans are lined with BPA-NI, the standard for canned beverages in California. NI stands for non-intent, and it means that there is no BPA in the manufacturing of the material.

q5:Does Sovi need to be refrigerated?

For the Sparkling Rosé we recommend storing it in the fridge or a cool place to help preserve its freshness. Enjoy slightly warmer than fridge temperature.
The Red Blend does not need to be refrigerated. Store in a cool place and enjoy slightly cooler than room temperature.

Unlike some wines, Sovi is not meant for aging and is best enjoyed young and fresh!

q6:Is Sovi gluten-free? Vegan?

Yes, Sovi is gluten-free and vegan.
