Ways to Wellness in Paso Wine Country:

Ocean Zero

Oceano Zero, where luxury wine embodies your wellness journey

Alcohol-removed wines are not only a novel idea, they’re also the next big thing in winemaking. Whether you’re abstaining from alcohol altogether or following the Damp January TikTok trend, a booze-free month is a great way to kickstart your 2024 fitness and nutrition goals. 

Stay with us here: Alcohol-removed wines are not only a novel idea, they’re also the next big thing in winemaking. Thanks to Oceano Wines, friends and family members who choose not to imbibe in alcohol (due to pregnancy, health or simply personal preference) can join in on the wine tasting fun.

Gather your friends or colleagues for a relaxed coastal-themed wine tasting experience hosted at your home, office, or club—wherever you wish! Oceano Wines Founder and Vintner Rachel Martin loves guiding folks through her winemaking philosophy and shedding light on the meticulous process behind crafting exquisite alcohol-removed wines. Did we mention these wines are SIP-certified sustainable, and vegan-friendly, too?

Taste: Far from those outdated non-alcoholic options, Oceano Wines’ “Ocean Zero” alcohol-removed wines are crafted via a painstaking process that removes most of the alcohol yet retains all the wine depth, complexity, and flavor you desire. Not sure? Sip and swirl this California-style pinot noir and chardonnay brimming with modern zest. These are refreshingly vibrant offerings, a natural reflection of the vineyard’s cool ocean breezes, coastal fog, and seafront soils.

Tip: For newcomers, try the Oceano New Year Balance Collection, which includes bottles of 2021 Oceano Chardonnay, 2022 Oceano Zero Pinot Noir, and Oceano Pinot Noir. Currently, tastings are only available via an exclusive group private experience and can be crafted to include food pairings upon request.

More to explore: One woman’s brush with the “Dry January” trend inspired a new wave of winemaking. Since giving up alcohol for her first Dry January in 2023, Oceano Wines winemaker Rachel Martin has been on a flavorful journey to find a renewed sense of balance. Crafting a healthier way to enjoy fine  wine—while never sacrificing fun—remains her ultimate goal. Now, you can be the first of your friends to hop on this wholesome alcohol-removed wine trend. Why not enjoy all the flavor, none of the hangover?
