SPONSOR HIGHLIGHT "MORE 4 MOM" GIVEAWAY EVENT
Well, because the owners of Draper Valley Vineyards do not actually drink alcohol, they purchased the poorly kept up land and wanted to create a "classy non-alcoholic beverage for meals and entertaining". And so the idea of Draper Valley 100% Grape Juice was born.
"Draper Valley Vineyard is dedicated to the production of a all natural wine-grape juice. You can purchase the unfermented pure juice of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Early Muscat, Riesling and Cabernet Sauvignon and experience rich, bold flavors like never before. We never add water or sugar — only the natural goodness of the grape."
Draper Valley sent me over two juices to review - 100% Gewurztraminer Grape Juice and 100% Cabernet Sauvignon Grape Juice. Right away Alana (teenager) wanted to try the juices out as we usually allow her sparkling cider for holidays like New Years. I have to say none of us were really big fans of the Gewurztraminer Grape as it had a plethora of flavors and needs a bit of that actual sparkle to truly bring them out. On the other hand everyone including Declan (in his sippy cup) loved the Cabernet! This one was very naturally sweet!
I love the idea that now I can bring along my bottle of "wine" to my holiday get togethers' where I know everyone will be drinking and not worry about anyone even noticing the difference. Its even great for pregnant and nursing moms with all the benefits and none of the dangers!! Also, not that it is encouraged to let children think they are drinking but sometimes they like to be included in adult activities. So now you can pour them a big kid glass during those special occasions without them feeling left out.
Recommendation: I liked these quite a bit and so did the kids! It was perfect for sipping on at a gathering or for the kids to have an all natural healthy alternative to the juices we usually have. I look forward to trying some of the other flavors!
