Golden Grape: The Wine With Real Gold

Updated on May 12, 2015

Not all that glitters is gold. Indeed, because some just sparkle, particularly in wines. You don't believe me? Then you better head to this place called Bystro in Dubai. This is a restaurant in the city where they offer a one of a kind wine that will surely be of interest to many. Just last year, 2014, an innovatively interesting new kick to the usual sparkling white wine was introduced to the sandpit. Lussory Gold, a sparkling wine infused with 24-k gold in its solution was released in the Middle Eastern market. This exquisite wine is made from Spain in a company called Dismark Products. It basically wowed a lot of gold loving wine drinkers since its introduction that the company manufacturing such product just had a deal of shipping 26,000 bottles on a monthly basis to the Emirates.

100% Alcohol Free

Quite a number of wines for a country implementing strict drinking rules one might regard, but another beautiful thing about it is that this specific wine, which just became a hit here during its first few weeks of release, is actually 100% alcohol free.

Yes, you read that right. Gold, wine, and no hangovers. Too good to be true? True. The wine company deliberately had experts work on their wine for it to have 0.0% alcohol before they are sealed and corked inside each bottle. It is said that a certain German vaccuum technique is used to remove the alcohol in them which is actually pretty neat when you think about it. If you are worried you might not get the same taste as of a typical wine due to its alcohol removal, there is honestly nothing to worry about as the elimination of such compound does not make it taste less of a good wine. The rich taste of grape is still retained and so does its enticing aroma. So you may pour your heart away and enjoy the taste of grapes for as much as you can take.

This feature of being without alcohol for a wine may be a bit off to some avid wine drinkers though, as it diminishes the idea of acquiring the boozed feeling. Which in most cases is the reason why one even started to want a drink in the first place. But I guess you can't really please everybody. Its concept merely is just to give its consumers that great sparkling wine taste and not the effects of drinking wine entirely which is good, as it is something positive for most people living in Dubai having majority of its residents to be our Muslim brothers and
sisters. This therefore makes this wine, everybody's wine.

We may have heard of edible gold before, serving as decorations to desserts and some gourmet plates but Lussory just have had the best creativity and incorporated such beauty to a very elegant subject - into sparkling wines. If you happen to see the actual bottle, just there and then, you will be captivated by its explicit display. Its bottle to start with, is utterly perfect showing off its elegant curves of a pear shaped bottom and an embossed label. By the time you get to have a closer glimpse at it, it can be noticed that gold is actually gliding gracefully inside the vessel. Going with the flow to the actual wine, it reminds me of snow globes, but even better - gold globes.

The idea of incorporating gold to something being ingested may seem absurd to those who only regard the metal as something suited for embellishments and jewelries. But truth be told, it is actually safe for consumption. Apropos of health concerns, gold appears to be surprisingly harmless to the body as well as its lesser counterpart, silver. However, according to food and health authorities, though these precious metals may actually be eaten or taken into the body, there is just a certain grade or a specific process that these should undergo first before they may be taken into our system. Therefore, that piece of jewelry dangling just right above your chest may not be chewed up and serve as an emergency snack, sad to say. Given the fact that this special wine has gold in it, a certain impression of it costing a fortune may be implied. But think again, because intimidating as these may seem, Lussory Gold wines are being sold at a very reasonable price. For something with the auric pieces, some AED 550 is actually a very good deal. It does not cost as much as the world's most expensive wine so this can be considered as a great find - a nice potential for a gift in some occasions as well.

The gold in this wine entirely speaks for the fact on to why it was first released in Dubai. The novelty, the elegance, and most especially the gold - very Dubai. Though the gold in it does not really affect the taste of the beverage as said earlier, just the mere fact that it has such in every gulp you take is actually fun when you think of it. It definitely is worth a try. Experience the joy of drinking a luxurious golden wine and be astounded.

The company which is responsible for this produce is already on its way to distributing to other countries besides the United Arab Emirates and they are quite excited on to how other nations are going to welcome such. On the other hand, it could also get a bit tricky due to the fact that it is alcohol free. It may just be considered as to something close to a soda, but still, a very classy kind of soda still sounds as great. Nonetheless, it is still quite interesting. Surely, people will welcome this warmly and may even be a potential hit to the mass.

So, come on and have a taste of what Lussory Gold can offer and be one of those who have lived to tell the tale of having indulged into the promising feel of experiencing the golden drink. And while we are at it, why don't we all cheers to that!

      This is exotic but have never tasted wine! The mere fact that it has gold makes it all the more alluring for everyone I guess!

      I've not come across gold used in drinks before, but it sounds lke something that'll catch on - even if only as a gimmick. Great Hub.

      I think they have already started making this specific wine available in some parts of Europe, in UK and Spain to name a few, and also in some countries in the Middle East - Qatar and KSA.
