I am afraid I agree that coq au vin is impossible to mmake without the wine. The vin is in the title, and while there are any number of delicious dishes you can make they would definitely have to be called caq sans vin, lol. The cooked wine is an intrinsic flavour and the dish cannot be replicated with out it.
Janden68 I am sorry, I think you are tring for the impossible. How about making a different stewed chicken dish, there are many wonderful things you could do!
