Product Spotlight: Fre Alcohol Removed Moscato

 

Fre is the leader in the alcohol-removed category and an important part of responsible alcohol service.

Fre wines have garnered a wide following for bringing the enjoyment and crisp flavors of high-quality wines to consumers who prefer alcohol-free beverages. These wines provide designated drivers, pregnant women, athletes and people who don’t drink alcohol for medical or religious reasons a more sophisticated alternative to soft drinks. The alcohol-removed category is one of the fastest-growing segments in the beverage industry. Additionally, providing Fre wines at a function or event is an integral part of thoughtful and responsible entertaining and service.

Fre offers a range of delicious wines from lighter styles, such as the fresh White Zinfandel and the dry Brut, to the award-winning Merlot and Premium Red varietals. Fre is available in White Zinfandel, Chardonnay, Brut, Merlot, Red Blend and Moscato varietals.

Fre wines utilize an innovative approach to remove the natural alcohol from each barrel while preserving the integrity of every flavor. This spinning cone process is superior to all other alcohol removal processes. As a result, this method produces impeccably delicious, alcohol-free wines.

Wine Spotlight: Duck Commander Miss Priss Pink Moscato

 

The Robertson’s, of TV’s DUCK DYNASTY® fame, live out the American Dream while staying true to their rugged outdoorsman lifestyle and Southern roots. This wildly successful Louisiana bayou family has remained grounded in what matters; family, friends, good food and fun.

 

This Red Blend exposes the fresh, ripe, jam like fruit that is the calling card of California wine. This medium bodied wine is fruit forward, silky and soft with smooth tannins.

 

Our Chardonnay offers rich tropical fruit aromas with hints of lemon and crisp apple laced around the complex nose. The palate is vibrant and full of pear, melon and apple pie with a silky, creamy finish.

 

Our Pink Moscato has luxurious aromas of white peaches, honeysuckle and caramel. Luscious passion fruit and honeydew melon flavors with hints of sweet vanilla are perfectly balanced by refreshing acidity.

Product Spotlight: Wines for Dummies Chianti

 

Never been to Tuscany? Andiamo — let’s go! Sit back and slurp spaghetti with our soft and succulent Chianti. This classic wine tastes of cherries and, just like us all, becomes more interesting as the meal proceeds. So, Salute (you deserve it)!

 

Food Pairing
Great served with pizza and dishes with tomato sauce.

 

About the Company
It’s time to change the way you look at wine. It’s also time — finally — for a wine that caters to those who are not wine snobs.

Whether a classically trained sommelier or a novice in the wine world, we’ve all had this experience before.

You walk into a supermarket, liquor store, or wine shop and gawk at hundreds (even thousands) of bottles there in front of you. So, which wine do you choose? Do you choose based on country or varietal (type of wine)? Do you pick a color, cover your eyes, and randomly select a bottle? Perhaps you attempt to match the type of wine with your meal. Or, do you simply go with the same bottle you’ve been buying for years because you’re afraid to try something new? You might even pull out your smartphone to quickly search the Internet for recommended bottles in your price range.
No More!

Wines For Dummies takes the headache out of choosing a wine that fits your needs. If you already know what you’re having for dinner, check the back of our labels for suggestions on what pairs well with each varietal. If you’re looking for a certain flavor, check the back label for a plain English explanation of what to expect inside the bottle. And, if you’re struggling to pronounce the name on one of our wines, no worries! All of our wines include a phonetic pronunciation on the front label.

We want you to enjoy wine, regardless of experience or budget. So, say no to anxiety, complications, and fancy language. It’s time that you spend less energy worrying about which wine to get and more energy enjoying the wines you’ll love.

Product Spotlight: Wines for Dummies Pinot Grigio

 

 

In Italy, food comes first, and the wine follows the food (we tend to follow both). This bright, golden-green Pinot Grigio has crowd-pleasing crisp apple and citrus flavors. Note: Unlike that second plate of pasta, this wine won’t stain your shirt!

 

Food Pairing
Superb with fish and poultry dishes.
