O. Vine could be especially appealing to pregnant women who miss the taste of wine but obviously shouldn’t be drinking anything with alcohol. It comes in still and bubbly flavours in both red and white varieties—there’s a Cabernet, Syrah, Merlot, and Petit Verdot for red fans and a Riesling and gewürztraminer for white drinkers. No word on where it will be sold yet, but keep an eye on the company’s website for more details.
If you're a fan of the taste of wine but not in the mood for alcohol, you're in luck. An Israeli start-up has created a miracle drink with your name on it: O. Vine Wine Grape Infused Water.
The drink plays on the “near water” category, with one the drink mixing the smell and taste of wine with pure spring water. The drink is nonalcoholic, 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.
“Our mission was to create a pure water sensation that not only inspires consumers to appreciate wine’s complex flavours and aromas but also leverages sustainable principles by reusing the skins and seeds from the wine grapes remaining from the winemaking process,” CEO of Practical Innovation Tal Leizer said in a press release.
