"For when you NEED a glass of wine, but aren't about the booze."
~ by MADISON FLAGER
O. VINE WATER has me singing "Drink to Me with O. Vine Eyes", and I don't even know how the heck that actual song goes. What I DO know is this new product sounds so interesting, especially to those who might be designated driver, trying to cut back or momma's to be.
This Wine Grape Infused Water will make its debut at the Fancy Food Show in New York this June . The drink plays on the 'near water' category that has everyone and their mother launching new seltzers, teas, and other lightly flavored beverages. This one mixes the smell and taste of wine with pure spring water. The drink is non-alcoholic, which may be good or bad in your eyes, but it does contain the good-for-you parts of wine by using extracts from wine grape skins and seeds. One of the compounds found in grape skin, resveratrol, may help boost cardiovascular health and protect against cancer. Pretty sweet perk for a mid-afternoon pick me up.
There's a cabernet, syrah, merlot, and petit verdot for red fans and a riesling and gewürztraminer for white drinkers. Be sure to check out the full article here. I for one, want to try this -- maybe on days I just need to cut back a bit (like after a wine tasting) or, when my teeth are completely purple. SWISH SWISH!
