Non-alcoholic wine

I have discovered Non-Alcoholic Wine! Wine is made and then they distill the wine and remove the alcohol and replace the removed liquid with water and juices. The resulting beverage is less than 0.5% alcohol by volume. And before you start to tell me that it still counts, you're right and I know that. But, there is as much alcohol in a glass of non-alcoholic wine as there is in a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice. And no one would caution me about drinking that.

So I started with a bottle of merlot. Meh, it was a little too fruity and not particularly merlot like. I got online and read some reviews and discovered that the consensus is that naturally fruitier varieties of wine are better sans alcohol. I am currently trying my first glass of white zin and it's not bad. It's certainly something I can pour for myself at functions and feel like I'm getting to enjoy the fun. I'm also going to try to make a non-alcoholic sangria! I also have two bottles of champagne that I will start trying on Mother's day. I'm pretty excited, I love champagne!

That's my update for today.
