I received this product from Domaine Sante for review. As it says on the bottle, this California Grape Nectar is "not your average sweetener". It is made from 100% California grown wine grapes and is blended according to French wine making traditions. This sustainably sourced, vegan friendly sweetener can be used in place of simple syrup, agave nectar, maple syrup and honey.
Being diabetic, I was intrigued when I heard about this California Grape Nectar and was anxious to try it. Especially when I learned that it is 25% the glycemic index of refined sugar and 50% less sugar content than Honey and Agave Nectar. This is HUGE for people who are diabetic, yet have a sweet tooth! I have not yet tried it in a cocktail or cooking with it, but it is awesome in tea! I even added it to my oatmeal as well, and it tasted delicious. I think my favorite is BORED-O ROUGE, but they are all delicious! I think it will be very interesting to try it in different recipes.
I received this 3 pack sample to review. It contains three different varieties of sweetener. BORED-O BLANC (Sauvignon Blanc & Semillon) is crisp and tangy with candied citrus and apple aromas. It is excellent to use as a replacement for agave and simple syrup. ALL SASS (Gewurztraminer & Riesling) is lighter and fragrant with floral and stone fruit aromas. It is excellent as a replacement for honey and agave. And BORED-O Rouge (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, & Malbec) is dark and jammy with berry and spice aromas. It is excellent as a replacement for maple syrup and grenadine.
The 3 pack sample set would make an excellent Christmas gift. You can purchase it HERE for $19.00. It is also available in larger bottle sizes that make wonderful gifts as well.
