A Devoran-born businesswoman has created a sparkling wine aimed at health-conscious drinkers.

Wild Life Botanicals, which has an alcohol content of just 0.5 per cent, was made by Cornish Sea Salt Co. co-founder Ellie Bradshaw.

The beverage is packed with vitamins and minerals and comes in at less than 35 calories per glass.

Ellie said: "With a background in luxury food, drink and hospitality I appreciate good wine but like so many of us that juggle the performance of work, life and parenting, I couldn’t find anything that appealed to my dry palate in the sparkling wine category that was ultra-low in alcohol when I needed it to be.

"I was bored of sparkling water, elderflower pressé-d out and didn’t want the high sugar content often found in so many soft drinks.

"I’m equally passionate about the power of herbs, art and the slow food movement."

Wild Life Botanicals is based at Burncoose Nurseries near Gwennap, with a bottling plant on the banks of the Helford River.

The bottles feature a label designed by Cornish artist Sarah Trewhella, a Falmouth University graduate.

The wine is infused with rose, lemon balm, rosemary and ashwagandha, popular in traditional medicine for a variety of uses.

It also includes damiana, zinc, niacin, thiamine and vitamin B6 - vitamins known for improving mood and overall health.

It takes 20 glasses of Wild Life Botanicals to reach the same level of alcohol as one glass of a standard 10 per cent ABV wine.

Wine expert Douglas Blyde said: "This is a happy encounter. It doesn’t feel like I’m missing out on an essential component (i.e. alcohol).

"With Champagne-like bubbles, Wild Life Botanicals is refreshing, has good acidity and moreish. The look is limpid and the aftertaste is super-clean and balanced.”
