Vignette Wine Country ~ Pinot Noir … Soda!

No, I’m not giving my daughter her first sip of a lovely Pinot Noir. Although I think the picture is cuter than all get out!

So, I decided to finally pop the cork… err, actually twist the cap off this bottle and discover what exactly is a wine soda. I shared it with my daughter’s who both enjoyed it, in fact the oldest has now laid claims to the remainder of it. The taste is of a grape soda, but not nearly as sweet and sugary. It’s lightly carbonated and doesn’t make you want to burp after the first sip, which is nice. I call this the grown up version of grape soda and it’s made with 50% juice. I don’t think it’s something I’d buy for myself, but it was a nice treat I enjoyed with my girls on a Sunday evening.

Before receiving this lovely gift I had never heard of “wine soda” before. I think it’s a cute gift idea that’s non-alcoholic, but is fancy like a wine, without being too “soda’y”. It’s along the lines of Martinelli’s Gold Medal Sparkling Juice, but more sophisticated, not as sweet and less carbonation.
