Bella aims to harness the appeal of Italy’s famous sparkling wines, while offering consumers an alcohol-free option.

Food Accademia is introducing the Bella Italian Fashion Drink collection of alcohol-free, wine-alternative drinks into global travel retail.

The range comprises a selection of sparkling white, rosé and red non-alcoholic drinks that have been produced in the Prosecco wine region of northern Italy.

“The sober-curious is a huge global trend,” said Food Accademia CEO, Fabrizio Canal.

“Bella Drinks is a new way to share conviviality while embracing sobriety and we will attract a unique community looking for exciting new taste experiences.

“Italy’s status as a global leader in food, oil and wine production is unrivalled and our role at Food Accademia is to bring the very best of Italy to our travel retail partners internationally.

“We work with partners to create a tailored portfolio to suit their travelling customers, so they can enjoy a taste of Italy wherever they may be in the world.”

The Bella Italian Fashion Drink collection is made using an internationally patented process designed to enhance and preserve the delicate aroma of the Glera grapes, which are used to make prosecco.

This process features technology that keeps the unpasteurised and micro-filtered must fresh, before blending with carbon dioxide.

Bella drinks are vegan and halal. Plus, they’re biodiversity and SQNPI certified.
