"Not wine, but interesting and complex in their own right."
Jun 25, 2022
I have been a monthly subscriber for several months and have enjoyed all of the proxies I've tried. I think the whites generally work better overall. My favorite that I have tried is the Pastiche. I was thinking about ordering a 4-pack of a particular different proxy that I hadn't yet tried, and came across this review site while looking for reviews. I am genuinely surprised that so many reviewers have been so unhappy, so I thought I should provide my alternate viewpoint. It's true that the proxies are not true "proxies" of wine; they don't taste like wine. But they are complex and interesting, and a nice complement to food or on their own. I prefer them to the non-alcoholic wines I have tried, perhaps because I feel like those non-alcoholic wines are trying to be like wine and don't succeed, while the proxies are trying to do their own thing, and succeed at that quite well.

So amazing. I've loved every bottle and am eager for each month's delivery. They're doing awesome things with flavor!

"The only proxy needed."
Jun 21, 2021
Loved having a complex non-alcoholic drink that fits the wine experience. This isn't sweet and simple like everything else on the market, so maybe it's not for everyone but if you like fun flavor and want something to pair with your dinner, this is for you.

"Nasty stuff"
May 15, 2022
I applaud any company taking on the challenge of creating a non-alcoholic wine as it's an incredibly difficult task. I purchased the Proxies Tasting Set. The first challenge I had was breaking through the wax seal to get at the cork. You need something sharp to cut it off which can be tricky and maybe even dangerous for some. It makes a mess in the process and clearly doesn't do much in terms of offering a barrier as one of the corks completely fell apart when I tried to open it. Please get rid of the ridiculous wax covering and use a screw top for convenience and quality control. If your goal is to recreate the 'experience' of opening a bottle of wine, I'd recommend you focus on the taste as the wax seal doesn't contribute anything positive. Of course the taste is what really matters and I'm with most of the other reviewers - it's nasty stuff and all of my guests agreed. Sorry Acid League.

"Vinaigrette in a wine glass"
Mar 15, 2022
There are a few decent local Canadian wine alternatives out there, and while not 100% a substitute, those give you a bouquet and flavour that mimic wine enough to give your liver a break every so often. Proxies, however are more like 5%. The smell reflects the odd mix of tomato vinegar and tea, and the flavour punch matches it. Honestly feels like this would make a better vinaigrette than anything that should be in a glass. I'm sure their vinegars are great and they should really stick to that. Please!

"Horrible Tasting!"
Feb 24, 2022
So horrible. I'm pregnant and thought these would be a good substitute for wine. Literally undrinkable and I'm a bit fan of wine, kombucha, vinegar... but these were awful. Waste of money.

"Nothing like drinking fancy vinegar..."
Feb 21, 2022
I tried ‘nightshade’ and ‘pastiche’ hoping for an alternative to alcohol. I was incredibly disappointed. They both tasted like I was drinking straight vinegar (red wine vinegar and apple cider vinegar to be exact). It left me feeling nauseous after one sip. What on earth were they thinking?! 🤢

"Olive Juice in a Bottle"
Jan 22, 2022
I don’t usually write reviews, but after tasting this I couldn’t let other people spend their hard-earned money without knowing what they’re in for. While the packaging and label seem promising, with one whiff of the wine - I knew we had just wasted our money. On the nose, it smells like straight-up olive juice and vinegar, and the taste was even worse. The scent is so strong and terrible that we tried to block our noses and drink it to see if that would make a difference, but it truly tastes like you collected the juice from olive containers, poured it into a nice bottle, added some vinegar, and sold it. If you love drinking olive juice that looks like wine, this is the product for you. If not, I’d stay away.

"Awful tasting -- undrinkable! "
Dec 19, 2021
A friend purchased these as a gift for me when I announced I was pregnant and they are truly terrible. It would have been ok if they didn't taste like wine, but they were honestly not drinkable no matter what kind of drink it was. It's to be noted that I am someone who enjoys drinking kombucha and sour beers, so even if this was more of a funky tea like flavour I feel like it is something I still would have liked. I opened 2 out of 4 bottles I received at a dinner party and 7/7 people deemed these as undrinkable (We tried the Nightshade Red and Sauvage). It's too bad because the branding and concept is amazing (I really wanted to love these), however I resorted to pouring them out because they were just that bad.

"Looks fancy, tastes horrible"
Dec 12, 2021
A friend bought me these while I was pregnant. I was excited to try them and was very disappointed. They don't resemble wine at all and taste awful. I would much rather drink sparkling water or juice in a wine glass than these. Way too pricey and not good. I do not recommend.
