SEATTLE — Jessica Selander has been sober for more than fifteen years — and in those fifteen years, she's discovered something about the choices of non-alcoholic drinks.
"As I got older, you know, I experienced a lot of those adult life moments," says Selander. "I got married, and I had Martinelli's Sparkling Cider. I'd get a new job. And it was Martinelli's Sparkling Cider. I got so tired of feeling like I was at the kid's table."
Selander wanted to create something other than sparkling juice — a non-alcoholic wine that actually tastes like wine. Good wine!
"I'm just someone who wanted a good non-alcoholic wine, a premium non-alcoholic wine, a dry non-alcoholic wine," says Selander.
She met with wine scientists — yes, they exist — to remove the alcohol from wine on a molecular level.
