No I don't think there is. I got horrible stuff for Christmas Day when I was pregnant and it really annoyed me too that it cost the same as proper wine even without all the tax.

Not really. The non alcoholic mulled wine is nice.
Alternatives I like are: Erdinger n.a beer, Lorina Pink Lemonade, j2o juices esp the Passion fruit one, the n.a. fizzy juices from Ikea e.g. apple or the pear one in a champagne style bottle and Schloer is ok too...tastes quite wine-y but also fizzy. The Koppaberg n.a. ciders are nice too but often cost same as alcoholic ones .

I have had the n.a. wine too when I was pregnant and it was absolutely rank. I would never get it again

The sparkling juice drink from Aldi is nice, nicer than Shloer.

I reckon the Karl Jung de alcoholised sparkling white wine is the best. By far the most drinkable of the lot. Is available in Superquinn and Dunnes for around 6 euro. :bigups:

Why would you bother? I'd go for soft drinks over non-alcoholic any day. That said the non alcoholic mulled wine from IKEA was nice.

This.

I love sparkling water with a dash of cranberry juice and a slice of lime.
Lots of lovely cordials available
Cobra non- alcoholic beer is the only nice one I've found.

I love Elderberry cordial with sparkling water pertersam. M&S do a lovely cordial there. I was at a market and they had non alcoholic warm Mulled wine and it was lovely.
