FAQ

Is Ryze a wine? 

Yes! Ryze is definitely a traditional wine. The only difference between Ryze and other wines is the production method that results in lower alcohol content.

Why do people choose Ryze?

There are many occasions when people want to enjoy the taste and ritual of fine wine but do not want the higher alcohol levels. Many Ryze customers love wine but desire to drink less alcohol because of health reasons.

Why make wine healthier? 

We wanted to make a good thing even better! Wine, with its grape-derived phenolic compounds, has been found to have more health benefits than other alcoholic beverages. When consumed in moderate amounts, wine has been proven to mitigate oxidative stress and vascular damage.

Will I still get the traditional benefits of wine? 

Yes! Just because the alcohol content is lower doesn’t mean you’re missing out on antioxidants and phenolic compounds. Polyphenols are known for their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. These compounds aren’t necessarily dependent on alcohol content but rather on the region of the vineyard, when the grapes are picked, and how the wine is made.

How is Ryze made? 

Our unique wine-making process includes blending high-quality grape juices and musts, choosing low ethanol-producing yeasts a post-fermentation process that helps to remove more alcohol through distillation.

Ryze White is crisp and delicate. You’ll also be able to experience it’s lighter fruity, citrus, or floral flavors without overpowering alcohol levels.  Ryze red won’t have the intense heat of traditional red wines but you’ll still pick up on its complex flavors. 

Why should I care about alcohol content? 

Simply reducing alcohol levels in beverages has been proposed as one strategy to reduce the negative effects of alcohol. A report by the World Cancer Research Fund in 2007 stated that a decrease in alcohol content from 14.2% to 10% would reduce the risk of breast and bowel cancer by 7%. 

Does Ryze have less sugar than traditional wines?

Yes! Another benefit of lower alcohol wine is lower sugar content. While wine needs sugar to produce alcohol, low-alcohol wines tend to have far less sugar because they’re completely fermented.
