Wine Water Now Exists Just in Time for Hot Summer Days05/22/2019
If you love the taste of wine, but can’t or don’t drink alcohol, an Israeli startup has created a miracle drink with your name on it: O. Vine Wine Grape Infused Water.
The drink plays on the ‘near water’ category that has everyone and their mother launching new seltzers, teas, and other lightly flavored bevs. 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.
“Our mission was to create a pure water sensation that not only inspires consumers to appreciate wine’s complex flavors 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.
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 flavors 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.
