The grapes come from the Coastal Region of South Africa, an area known for high quality wines from low yielding vineyards. All their growers are Fairtrade certified.

Winemaking & Alcohol Removal

Meticulously picked at full maturity, the grapes undergo a gentle pressing to extract a light color for the must. Fermentation occurs at controlled temperatures of 12-14 °C, promoting a slow process that enhances the wine’s mouthfeel. Following fermentation, the wine rests on the lees for up to 3 weeks, imparting additional complexity.

With utmost care, they employ a vacuum spinning cone process to remove alcohol while preserving the wine’s integrity.

The outcome is a refreshing rosé wine boasting distinct strawberry tones, herbal notes, and citrus flavors. Perfect as a non-alcoholic aperitif on a hot summer day or paired with flavorful fish dishes and salads.

About the Producer

Cognato – meaning “closely related to”

In 2018, cousins David Sommestad and Adam Malmnäs identified the need for an elegant and refined alcohol-free wine to accompany a variety of dishes. Dissatisfied with the existing options, they embarked on creating Cognato, an alcohol-free wine that would exceed expectations. They overcame the challenge of developing a low-sugar alcohol-free wine that closely resembled traditional wines, and their initial offerings, Cognato Rosé and Cognato Red, received a highly positive response. Encouraged by this success, they expanded their range to include Cognato White. In 2020, they proudly achieved Fairtrade certification, demonstrating their commitment to providing fair and sustainable working conditions throughout the production process.

David and Adam's pursuit of a sophisticated alcohol-free wine stemmed from a lack of satisfying alternatives in the market. Through extensive research and collaboration with production partners, they successfully created Cognato, offering a high-quality alcohol-free wine that met the demands of discerning consumers. The positive reception from the public and the addition of Cognato White further solidified their position in the market. Their Fairtrade certification highlights their dedication to ethical practices, ensuring fairness and sustainability throughout the wine production journey.
