Illuminating the idea of what fine wine can be, Luminara is the first-ever exquisitely crafted, alcohol-removed wine made from fruit grown in the prized Napa Valley appellation. By selecting grapes of exceptional quality, in tandem with the most advanced proprietary de-alcoholization technology in the world, Luminara delivers a true fine wine experience—without the alcohol. 

Harvest Notes

The 2018 growing season was yet another exceptional one for Napa Valley. September harvest weather was excellent, providing a typical vineyard yield. October rains were a welcome occurrence, helping to alleviate persistent drought conditions.

Winemaking Notes

Our technologically superior and delicate alcohol-removal process allows us to retain the bright acidity and fresh fruit flavors in this Chardonnay.  Using a revolutionary spinning cone column, we gently extract and safeguard the wine’s delicate aromas and flavors. The alcohol is then removed and the wine essences are re-introduced to the base juice. The finished wine is aged in both French and American oak to impart additional complexity and texture.

Palate

Our lively alcohol-removed Chardonnay reflects its premium Napa Valley terroir with rich tropical fruit aromas, followed by a palate of Fuji apple and lemon cream. The finish brings a refreshing crispness. This wine shows a lively medium-weighted palate with vibrant varietal fruit characteristics, making our Chardonnay a luminous offering for any occasion.
