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 are these wines between 10 and 20 proof and 5%-10% ABV, or 5-10 proof and 2.5%-5% proof?

            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"

          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.
