Draper Valley Vineyard Riview and GIVEAWAY!!

With New Year's Eve(and the holidays) fast approaching, I know there will be a high demand for drinks weather hosting or attending parties.

Since I am not really a drinker, I always find that this is kind of depressing. I have feeling left out of toasts and such, and I hate trying to bring wine or campaign as hostess gifts since I know nothing about them.

That is why I am so excited to have found a product that I can feel good about drinking and gifting. It is a non alcoholic drink made only from grapes, but it is every bit as delicious and elegant as any wine could hope to be(in my opinion). In fact, I think it is very better since it does not have the fermented taste.

Draper Vally Vineyard uses only the best grapes(the same ones used for wine) to create wonderful alcohol free juices that have all the wonderful flavor notes of wine without the alcohol.

They are also every bit as beautiful(making the great for gifting). And they are great to serve to children that want to be included in a grown-up toast. They will feel(and maybe think) like they are getting the same great stuff, not drinking just kiddie juice.

What is really amazing to me is how only grapes can have such a wide range of flavor notes. It is so incredible. I only tried 2 of the flavors so far, but they are both fantastic(and so different).

This wonderful golden juice has the flavor notes of green apple, peach, apricot and a splash of citrus(all just from grapes).

This is wonderfully bright with just a touch of tartness. It is very refreshing. This is not something to gulp however. The flavor is very intense(in a wonderful way). Just a little sip is enough to make you fall in love.

I will definitely be getting more of this.

Pinot Noir:
A deep red with rich flavor. Notes of black cherry, currents and berries and just a hint of cinnamon.

I love both flavors, but this was my favorite. I love cherry, and somehow this juice really has a wonderful cherry flavor to it. The depth of flavor is so unbelievable.

To me this one tastes more deep and romantic. Words are hard to find to describe this, but I will say this flavor is a little more "special occasion" although it's good enough to be enjoyed all the time.

This is the perfect date night choice, and would be amazing for a wedding.

You will be blown away by either flavor(and I imagine the other Draper Vally Vineyard flavors as well). The quality is so high. I am amazed that the prices are as low as they are.(especially since these two flavors[and the Gewurztraminer flavor] are on sale right now.)

Seriously, if you enjoy wine or just want a really special drink to celebrate with, gift, or just enjoy anytime, you will not be disappointed with one of these fabulous juices.

And just a helpful hint, these are corked, so be sure to be prepared(I was not). I had to buy a corkscrew and I bought a super cheap junk one and had a rough time getting my delicious juice free. You will be very sad if you have to wait, so be ready(You can even buy a corkscrew on their website).

I know you are all dying to try these, so we are giving away a bottle each of these 2 wonderful juices(1 winner). Enter below for your chance to win. Good luck.
