The soda that drinks like wine
Picnic, barbecue and backyard party season is upon us. And with it comes a craving for a refreshing drink. As much as we love our cocktails, craft brews and, of course, rosé, we all know that alcohol isn’t always on the menu. What I recommend for parties when alcohol is a no-go, or just to offer an option for guests who aren’t inclined to imbibe is to include non-alcoholic Vignette Wine Country Soda when you’re stocking drinks.
An all-natural soft drink alternative
These alternatives to main stream sodas are all natural, lightly sparkling and not so sweet. In fact, there’s no added sugar. Flavors are in keeping with a wine theme and include Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Rosé from varietal grapes. And yes, as the name implies, the company really uses grapes from California Wine Country. (They’re based in Berkeley.)
As far as flavor goes, these drinks have a profile closer to wine than grape juice. In fact, the California Brut makes a perfect non-alcoholic mimosa. (The fizz is more reminiscent of Champagne than soda.) Wine Country Soda comes in 750ml bottles, so it even has a look and feel reminiscent of wine. They company also packages them in individual, 12-oz bottles if you prefer.
