Anything else I should know?
The McGuigan winery is committed to sustainable winemaking practices, with 100% of our Buronga Hill winery’s electricity generated by renewable energy
Why is there a ‘nutritional information’ panel and ‘best before’ date on the back label?
Nutritional information ensures you know the kilojoules, protein, fat, saturated fat, carbohydrate, sugars and salt in the wine. Removing alcohol reduces the wine’s capacity to age, so to ensure it tastes exactly how the winemaker intended we recommend enjoying Zero on or before the ‘best before’ date specified on the label
