Wine with really low Alcohol percent

What are some of the choices for low Alcohol wines. I know of "Kedem Concord Kal" at 3.5%. Any others out there? I wouldn't mind some variety at the seder.

    1. Rashi Malvasia is red at about 5%,Rashi Moscato is white at about the same percentage. They are both good. The Moscato is on the sweet side. Bartenura Moscato is not quite as sweet ,better I think, but I am not sure of the alcohol content.

        Tops on Avenue U (East 28-29 ) has an Israeli Kal that is far superior to the Kedem product. There is also Zakon Red Muscatini @5% which is my favorite. Bartonura Malvasia is also a good low alcohol red wine. Tops has the best prices in Brooklyn by the case.

            Hey Marty
            Thanks for the list - does anyone here know whether we're talking Proof or ABV? Proof is going to be double the Alchohol By Volume...so are these wines between 10 and 20 proof and 5%-10% ABV, or 5-10 proof and 2.5%-5% proof?
            Thanks!

            1. re: FleitanZ

              He gave % signs, so they're all ABV. Also, I don't think I've ever seen wine listed by proof. Only hard liquor is listed by proof. So why would you even think these were proofs?

              1. re: avitrek

                Good point. I asked because here this wine is listed as exaclty double what he listed:

                1. re: FleitanZ

                  Marty was most likely referring to the Bartenura Moscato, ie "the famous blue bottle"
                  https://wwws.onlinekosherwine.com/pro...

          2. If you are considering the Bartenura Moscato (blue bottle) Sara Bee Moscato available at Trader Joe's is 5.5% by volume and is $5.99 per bottle.

              Less sweet so I like it better than the Bartenura and my kids like it less. Bottle is not so pretty though.
