Ariel is a brand of non-alcoholic wines produced since the mid-1980s by J. Lohr wines in Napa, California. The fruit is sourced from the same vineyards that produce J. Lohr wines in the Central Coast, between Monterey County and Paso Robles. Jeff Meier and Steve Peck are the principal winemakers. The wines are made according to standard methods, but with 99.5% of the alcohol removed during a cold filtration process. This means the products resemble traditional wines, but without the alcohol. According to the Ariel website, this is how it works: “1. The base tank is initially filled with wine. 2. A pump pushes the wine into the reverse osmosis unit. 3. The cylinders have membranes that separate a syrupy concentrate from the alcohol and water. 4. The water and alcohol flow into a storage tank, and the concentrate is recycled 10-20 times. 5. Finally, before bottling, fresh water is added to the concentrate, creating the finished product!”   The wines are available in single varietal styles such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, White Zinfandel and Chardonnay as well as red and white blends and sparkling wines.  Read less
