A Non-Alcoholic Alternative Made With Delicious Wine Grapes

You may already know Food & Vine Inc.’s Salute Sante! of the Napa Valley for its organic, high smoke-point grapeseed oil.

Now, get to know its divine new beverage, Napa VinJus, made from early-picked varietal grapes with low-sugar levels and high acid. The result is a non-boozy, golden-hued drink that is quite tangy, crisp, and with notes of green apple and honeysuckle.

I’m not a fan of sugary sodas, so I really fell for VinJus’ perky, puckery flavor. Indeed, it has about half the sugar of regular grape juice. Enjoy it in place of soda, or as an alternative to a cocktail.

A 750ml bottle sells for $14.50 at www.napavinjus.com/. You’ll also find it at Julia’s Kitchen at Copia in Napa, Go Fish Restaurant in St. Helena, Zuzu Tapas Bar in Napa, and the Culinary Institute of America’s Greystone Campus in St. Helena.

  • Thanks for the post. I love non-alcoholic drinks, this sounds good to me. Any place in the South & East Bay they sell it? What about SF?

  • Ann I am asking the same question too. I hope they branch out to Bev Mo, Whole Foods, or even Safeway. I would love to try it. We will see….

  • I just checked again with the publicist for VinJus. It is available only at the places mentioned above. Sorry about that! Let’s hope for a wider distribution soon. Meantime, you can order it online if you don’t mind paying shipping costs.
