Fre Wine FINAL

Make sure to repin these recipes

If you did not know I am not a huge wine drinker – I tend to stay away from alcohol by choice so I was super excited when I learned about Fre Alcohol-removed wines since they provide an alternative beverage for people who cannot or choose not to consume alcohol. Through the de-alcoholization process of producing Fre, less than one half of one percent of alcohol remains in the wine. The winemakers use the revolutionary spinning cone column to remove alcohol while preserving the delicate fragrances and flavors of the wine there is less than 0.5% alcohol and half the calories of traditional wine.

I decided to buy two different types of the wines to test out. I ended up buying the Red Blend and Brut ( this one was my favorite).

FRE Wine Brut 4

I decided to make my famous salmon recipe to pair with the Fre Alcohol-removed Brut wine. This recipe packs a HUGE punch of flavor that is ignited by the crispness of the wine.

Below is what you will need

FRE Wine Brut

What I also love about this recipe is that you will most likely have everything you need in your pantry already

I also thought it would be fun to make a recipe using the  Fre Alcohol-removed wine as well. I ended up making chocolate bites using the red blend wine. Do not forget about drinks! Fre Alcohol-removed wine serves as a great base for mocktail recipes.

Fre Wine 4

I am not too sure what to name this sweet treat – but for now I am calling it my wine chocolate tart – this is perfect to make for parties – also the dish took under 10 minutes to make from start to finish. I cannot wait to make this again for my friends and family.

I used a instant pudding mix – I added 1 cup of cold milk and about 1/2 cup of Fre Alcohol-removed wine Red Blend – mixed well and placed into a piping bag. I found the mini shells in the freezer section but they were already baked. Just filled and garnished!

I took some fresh mint from the garden for added flavor and texture.
