My religious affiliation does not allow the consumption of wine, so I was uber excited to find websites that sell wine with the alcohol filtered out.  Apparently the company Ariel makes alcohol free wines that win gold medeal taste tests against alcoholic wines, so I boght a bottle of Merlot.   So my question is whether it is the fermented grapes or the actual alchol that makes it beneficial.. since grapejuice is only a neutral.  Thanks for the comments!

I believe it is the fermented grapes which are beneficial!
enjoy!

I have tried Ariel before, it was along time ago so they have probably improved tremendously. I dont recall them having a merlot so I would be interested to know if it is enjoyable or not. Have some happy sipping and let us know what you think.

Thanks Lola!  I tried some non-alcoholic wine from a HFS around here, but they added all sorts of preservatives and even grape juice to it... it's pretty nasty.   So I'm pretty optimistic about this company--http://www.arielvineyards.com/about_faq.html

I just had to chime in on this one!.

I used to work for the winery that makes Ariel non-alcoholic wine!. I never thought i would see it brought up on this mb!.

Anyways i worked for them for 6 years and i can say they had a pretty good clientele with the Ariel. We even had celebrities that ordered it!. It was also used (probably still is) for celebrating sport victories, like televised baseball games, etc...

Brings back memories!.

What a brilliant idea.  Unfortunately it doesn't look as though it is available in the UK.  Might enable the youngsters to enjoy wine without getting blotto though that seems to be the object of the exercise these days.

the red wines are less acidic, that's why O's should stick to them, except in the case of chardonnays, of which many are made in a less acidic style...(I admit it, I love chardonnay...) and the reason wine is more healthful than grapejuice is partly, anyway, because the fermentation breaks down the skins so thoroughly, releasing the anthocyanins and catechins, etc.

Thank you for providing the weblink to the company.  This is a nice wine alternative for people who can not drink alcoholic beverages for moral, personal, or religious purposes, or are sensitive to consuming alcoholic beverages.

Yeah, I'm way excited!!  I just love the sophistication of the whole thing.. and sitting on the couch, swirling around my red beverage in a crystal goblet..lol.  It was shipped FedEx, so I'm hoping to see it within a few days!  We'll have to call each other when we get our bottles & make a wireless toast

Lola,

Use erictm998's link http://www.arielvineyards.com/about_faq.html it will take you right to them.

Kind of ironic that even though i worked at the winery i'm not a wine drinker. The sulfates in the wine give me headaches. I wish i liked red wine because of the health benefits, the only red wine i like was when the tasting room would mull it in the winter, that was good.

mull it, means?

got it, thanks!
To mull a drink means to warm it, and a mull is a hot mixed drink generally based on wine (usually red) and flavoured with herbs and spices, such as mulled wine.

had never heard the term........

Ok, so my order came in today... but I wasn't extremely impressed.  It's much better than the cheap stuff I have, but they still add juices and preservatives to it.. bleh.  I guess I'll just stick w/cooking with the organic stuff, eh

I ordered some organic wine with no added sulfates from Frey orchards. There is always a small amount of sulfates from the grapes but I am hoping that this will be be better. Mickey, have you tried these?

If the alcohol is filtered out, does it also feel "softer"? My main problem with alcohol is that it burns my mouth. (Sensitive tissues; can't even use adult toothpaste.)

As for mulling: that sounds like what we drink in Sweden around 13 december (Lucia celebration); served with raisins and chopped almonds.
