The Gentle | White is a fascinating alcoholic beverage that exhibits an impressive 6.0% alcohol volume. Styled like a fine white wine, it presents a distinct, vibrant personality that makes it stand out. This drink sparkles with a brilliant, clear, straw-yellow colour, catching the light and drawing your gaze. On the nose, it imparts a fragrant bouquet filled with aromas of fresh citrus fruits, green apples, and subtle floral notes, hinting at the complex flavour profile within. The Gentle | White invites you to immerse yourself in its alluring flavours, offering a taste experience that will leave you longing for more.

We apologise, but due to international shipping restrictions on alcohol, we're unable to deliver this beverage overseas.

The citrussy, slightly tropical white, based on Sauvignon Blanc, and the raspberry-like rosé, based on the grape blauer portugieser, are the standouts – with a good concentration of flavour and nice body, they are a pleasure to drink.

The Gentle’s founders Moritz Zyrewitz and Stefan Canditt have a background in developing non-alcoholic wines (“Like every good story, ours begins with a massive headache,” they say cheerfully). They felt mid-strength wine offered the opportunity to create something more interesting. They acknowledge there’s still room for improvement. “We have already achieved a lot, but we are not satisfied with that,” says Zyrewitz. “We’re testing different ways of dealcoholisation – vacuum versus membrane – against harvesting and fermentation methods but plan to go deeper.”

Serving Suggestions

To fully enjoy the experience of sipping on The Gentle | White, follow these simple serving suggestions:

  • Chill: This wine is best served chilled. Aim for a temperature of around 8-10°C for optimal taste and refreshment.
  • Glassware: Choose a white wine glass, which is narrower than red wine glasses to preserve the wine's crisp, fresh flavours and to concentrate its aromas.
  • Pouring: When pouring, fill the glass only to the widest part of the bowl. This allows the wine to breathe and concentrates the aroma towards the top of the glass.
  • Aroma: Take a moment to appreciate the wine's aroma before tasting. Gently swirl the glass to release the fragrance and discover its unique bouquet.
  • Taste: Take a sip, let the wine coat your palate, and enjoy the variety of flavours.

By following these steps, you can elevate your wine drinking experience and ensure that the unique qualities and flavours of The Gentle | White are fully appreciated.

About The Gentle

"The Gentle" is an innovative alcohol brand founded by Moritz Zyrewitz and Stefan Canditt, borne out of a shared love for wine and a vision for creating enjoyable, less-alcoholic beverages. Moritz Zyrewitz, the founder and idea generator for The Gentle wine GmbH, brings years of expertise in the field of de-alcoholised wines, ensuring each product is meticulously crafted to his envisioned taste. Stefan Canditt, the co-founder, brings robust operational and purchasing experience, contributing to a seamless and structured business process.

The genesis of The Gentle is rooted in an all-too-common experience – a pounding headache after an evening of over-indulgence. With the intention to create a delightful, guilt-free drinking experience without the usual aftermath, Moritz and Stefan embarked on their journey to formulate a wine with the full taste but only half the alcohol content. Their solution was a clever reinterpretation of a time-honoured winemaking technique known as cuvéeing. By blending traditional wine with gently de-alcoholised wine, they succeeded in creating a range of beverages with just 6% alcohol - full of flavour but lighter on the head.

In this journey, they found invaluable support and synergy in the Wasem family winery. The three Wasem brothers - Julius, Philipp, and Gerhard - representing the fourth generation of this family of passionate vintners, bring an unparalleled depth of knowledge and tradition to this collaboration. Their winery not only offers exquisite wines but also extends to an elegantly connected hotel and a culinary experience focused on fine, regional food.

"The Gentle", with its innovative approach to winemaking, and the Wasem family, with their generational expertise and passion for wine, together embody a fusion of tradition and modernity. The result is a range of beautifully crafted, half-alcohol wines that deliver on taste, enjoyment, and sophistication without compromise. Their shared commitment to continually experimenting and enhancing their offerings reflects the spirit of curiosity and progress that defines The Gentle. This pursuit of excellence in every bottle is what makes The Gentle an exceptional choice for those who seek full enjoyment with mindful drinking.
