Bex notes: Is wine really wine if there is NO alcohol? The stuff I've tried is terrible, just serve me Welchs grape juice instead please!

Of course this is my blog and therefore my plug for my HALF ALCOHOL wine, that actually tastes good. Everything is better in moderation they say! Don't throw the baby (alcohol) out with the wine.
