Does dealcoholized wine taste the same as regular wine?

The removal of alcohol produces structural changes in the wine, because when one of the main elements (alcohol) is removed, other elements are concentrated, such as total acidity and tannins. Careful selection of both wine and dealcoholization technology are important to help maintain quality and minimize any negative impacts of the alcohol removal. The quality of the grapes and the winemaking practices have a large effect on the quality of any wine, the higher the quality the higher the end result. Utilizing a dealcoholization process, such as vacuum distillation like we do here at BevZero, which can remove alcohol through low temperatures, short run times, and a single pass process while maintaining the aroma and flavor volatiles, will provide the highest quality results.
