Bringing a whole new meaning to the phrase “not drinking” and hitting the drinks sector is a generation of non-alcoholic drinks, generating a different kind of excitement among its consumers. Separating itself from traditional stories of sobriety, this ‘trend’ isn’t about avoidance of alcohol, but rather to seek something - something for enjoyment that can seamlessly fit into their lifestyle.


*2017, 20% of Australians abstain from alcohol (showing a 9% increase from 2007) - Drinkwise.org.au (2017)


In response to the prominent increase, companies have shifted their focus onto the drivers of this new trend, namely being the rise of the experience economy and consumer curiosity, wellbeing and demand in choice. As the non-drinker market is expanding to those choosing sobriety for health purposes, those who don’t have a desire to try alcohol and those approaching legal drinking age, new consumption occasions are created, such as ‘Daybreaker’ alcohol-free morning drinking sessions - evidently creating a higher demand for non-alcoholic options.


As a response to current market trends and lack of choice within the drinks sector, Edenvale has been developed to offer consumers a superior quality; alcohol removed range of Australian wines. They are experts in the field of alcohol reduction and removal, offering a sophisticated alcohol removed alternative for those who still wish to sip on an adult beverage. Unlike many other non-alcoholic options seen as inferior choices to alcohol, Edenvale wines align the quality of experience by offering non-alcoholic options that can provide the same ‘moment’ or ‘feeling’ many crave during times of celebration.


Edenvale wines are a non- alcoholic, low sugar, sophisticated beverage that drinkers in the non-alcoholic market can take delight in for any occasion - anytime, any day.
