I've been trying for some time to locate local distributors of alcohol-removed wines. While I don't have issues with cholesterol, etc, Alzheimer's runs in my family and my GP suggests that a glass of red wine a day could be a useful preventative measure. However, I appear to be allergic to alcohol. I've never had issues cooking with just a bit of wine, but I have a terrible reaction after drinking even a few ounces.
I recently discovered a nice alcohol-removed wine, but can only seem to find them available for mail order (and by the case), and the cost of shipping is more or less prohibitive. Does anyone know of any liquor stores (chain or otherwise) or other local sources which have non-alcoholic wine- stuff that tastes like wine and not like grape juice- for retail sale?
I live on the North Side of the city, work near Merchandise Mart, and would be taking CTA, so locations way out in the suburbs wouldn't be feasible.
