The Gentle | Sparkling White is a beautifully crafted semi-alcoholic sparkling wine with an alcohol content of just 6.0%. This unique creation strikes the perfect balance between vibrant acidity and subtle fruitiness, making it an appealing choice for those who savour their bubbly but wish to moderate their alcohol intake.

Upon uncorking, this sparkling wine reveals a fresh and inviting bouquet of green apple and citrus, complemented by a hint of white flowers. Its fine effervescence and well-rounded flavour profile make it an ideal choice for celebrations, aperitifs, or just casual sipping.

As part of The Gentle's portfolio, the Sparkling White stands as a testament to their commitment to crafting full-flavoured, lower-alcohol wines that don't compromise on taste or quality. Whether for a celebration or a quiet evening in, The Gentle | Sparkling White is your perfect companion, allowing you to fully enjoy the moment.

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

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.”

Food Pairings

When it comes to food pairings, The Gentle | Sparkling White is a wonderfully versatile choice. Its light effervescence and fresh, crisp flavour profile complements a range of dishes:

  1. Appetizers: Start your meal with appetizers like fresh oysters, smoked salmon, or caprese skewers (mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, and basil) for a refreshing beginning.
  2. Seafood dishes: The wine's citrus notes pair beautifully with seafood dishes such as grilled shrimp, seared scallops, or a light fish like cod or haddock.
  3. Light poultry dishes: The sparkling wine's balanced acidity cuts through the richness of poultry, making it an excellent pairing for dishes like chicken salad or turkey wraps.
  4. Fresh salads: A crisp, fresh salad with a vinaigrette dressing is a perfect match for the Sparkling White, enhancing its fresh fruit and floral notes.
  5. Soft cheeses: Soft, creamy cheeses like Brie, Camembert, or a mild goat cheese create a delightful contrast with the wine's crispness.
  6. Fruit-based desserts: End the meal on a sweet note with fruit tarts or a light lemon cake, bringing out the wine's subtle fruity notes.

With these pairing suggestions, you can craft a delightful dining experience that truly complements the unique qualities of The Gentle | Sparkling White.

Serving Suggestions

To fully appreciate the charm of The Gentle | Sparkling White and enhance its delightful qualities, consider these serving suggestions:

  1. Chill: Ensure the sparkling wine is properly chilled before serving. Aim for a temperature between 6-8°C for optimal refreshment and flavour. You can chill it in the refrigerator for about 3 hours, or in an ice bucket with a mix of ice and water for about 30 minutes.
  2. Glassware: Serve the wine in a Champagne flute to preserve its fine bubbles and concentrate its bouquet, enhancing the overall tasting experience.
  3. Pouring: Tilt the glass slightly and pour slowly along the side to prevent the bubbles from foaming up and spilling over. Fill the glass only about two-thirds to leave room for the bubbles and aromas to develop.
  4. Sipping: Take a moment to appreciate the wine's aroma, then take a small sip and let it linger in your mouth before swallowing to fully savour its crisp, fresh flavours.

Following these serving steps can truly elevate the experience of drinking The Gentle | Sparkling White, ensuring that its unique qualities are fully enjoyed.

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.
