Wine country soft drinks with no wine

A non-alcoholic line of soft drinks using wine grapes is being offered on the Hello DELICIOUS Modern Gourmet Boutique online site.

It better be delicious. The new sampler pack of 12 bottles goes for $35, or nearly $3 a bottle for rosé, chardonnay and pinot noir flavors of what are called Vignette Wine Country Sodas.

The sparkling beverages have no added sugar, are 100% natural, and the line is billed as "the first of its kind to be made with California wine country grapes."

Aiming at the younger, tech-centric consumers, Hello DELICIOUS brags that "We represent the next generation of foodies. We’re all about what’s new, what’s now, and what’s next." And, to prove it, the company has come up with a blog called "The Dish" that it hopes will resonate with customers.
