ISO white wine alternative

I had a slow cooker recipe that called for white whine. what a non-alcoholic alternative?

Chicken stock is a pretty standard substitute for white wine.

My first thought is... grape juice. My second thought is... I suppose there's such a thing as bottles of non-alcoholic wine?

Grape juice may be too sweet for a savory dish. A broth or even water to make u the missing volume would probably be better.

It very much depends on what you are making.

Juice a lemon and make up the difference in the liquid needed with chicken stock. Works like a charm!

Grape juice may be too sweet. If I was to use it, I'd cut it with some "white balsamic vinegar". And yes, there are several non-alcoholic wines that would probably be better than white grape juice.
