S.Pellegrino Essenza is an Elegant, Refreshing Wine Alternative

People who are looking to decrease the amount of soda and alcohol they consume are turning to refreshing, flavorful and texture-rich alternatives like sparkling water—and S.Pellegrino Essenza is a line of flavored mineral water products that has the potential to be enjoyed as a stand-in for wine.

When it comes to enjoying these products, the brand recommends pairing the S.Pellegrino Essenza Lemon & Lemon Zest with shellfish, fresh greens and seasonal fruit, while the Dark Morello Cherry & Pomegranate naturally complements chocolate desserts and red meat—much like classic white and red wine pairings. The third and final S.Pellegrino Essenza flavor, Tangerine & Wild Strawberry, falls somewhere between the other two, offering an option that matches the intensity of medium-flavored dishes like fresh pasta and sautéed vegetables.
