a box for yourself and ask the rest to bring their own.
Glad to hear that you’re going with the boxed wines! They’re actually quite good and get a lot of mileage. Another choice is a very good, and very popular brand at Trader Joes called Charles Shaw (or 2 Buck Chuck). It comes in Zinfandel, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc, and Chardonnay and costs about $1.99 per bottle. If you go with bottled wine, plan on 1 bottle per 2 people. If you go for the box, and Almaden is a good brand by the way, plan on each person having a 4 – 6 oz serving. Mondavi is another brand to try but harder to find, and you might consider a Gallo. Also, have a few bottles of sparkling cider on hand for those that don’t drink and plenty of soft drinks and bottled water. Shopping at a place like Costco or Sam’s is great because you can buy in bulk for cheap! Good luck and congratulations!

One of the reasons why alcohol is used in cooking is that certain flavor compounds are alcohol soluble, but not water soluble. Alcohol substitutes aren't going to liberate those alcohol soluble flavors. Your dish will not be identical to the original recipe, but it will still be lovely.
When you decide what to use to substitute for the wine, think about what the wine is in the dish for.
If it is to provide acidity in a marinade, fruit juice may be a good substitute. If you substitute juice, it’s going to add a great deal of sweetness to the dish. You might do part juice and part red wine or rice vinegar if you don't want additional sweetness.
If the wine is to add needed (and flavorful) moisture in a dish, I'd use stock. Any kind of stock – vegetable, chicken, beef, veal, you name it. But don’t use bullion from cubes – it will over salt your dish. Don't have any stock? Use water - it won't add any flavor to the dish, but it won't hurt the flavors that are already there.
If wine is called for to deglaze a pan, again, I'd use some stock that would compliment the dish.
Happy eating to you!
Depending on the dish, any kind of stock, chicken, beef, vegetable, could be substituted. The wine usually adds some flavor, but in some dishes it actually tenderizes the meats.
But like Emerel always says, “This aint rocket science” So just substitute anything for the wine…even water ,depending on the recipe
Good luck, oh..and BabBaBaBAMMMMMM!!!!
If you are talking storage, keep it in the basement, out of the light, and dry. Make sure it is laying on its side, and try not to move them very much.
In the cooler go the whites you will drink over the next two weeks, or the reds you will drink in the next 5-7 days.
First of all, alcohol doesn’t steam out of anything however it will burn off if caught on fire.
I recommend a non alcoholic wine. I don’t drink either and use alchohol free wine.
The location should have good humidity and a temperature around 55 degrees.
Store with the wine touching the cork so the cork will not dry out.
