In recent years, non-alcoholic wines have risen to popularity. Thanks to a handful of countless booze-free varietals hitting the market, they’re not just for those who are abstaining from alcohol. These robustly flavored beverages are great for people looking to drink less alcohol, to have on hand for those who don’t drink when entertaining, and for those who want to mix up their happy hour repertoire. Still, just like that box of chocolate you totally didn’t get a loved one for Valentine’s Day (too busy picking out the perfect personalized gift, right?), not all non-alcoholic-vino is created equal.
That’s why we set out on the lofty but lovable task of sitting back and sipping up dozens of non-alcoholic wines to cull the best of the bunch.

You can buy individual bottles for $28 each here.
