Please note that a red wine substitute may alter the final outcome of your recipe in either taste, texture, moisture or smell. But, in the case of substituting for red wine, it is probably the acidic ingredient that is needed in your recipe and that is why balsamic vinegar makes a great substitute for red wine. The non-alcoholic grape juice option will not work for many recipes, but may be an option depending on your other ingredients.
