Nor do i have neighbors that will share. haha. so what should i do? i know there are some substitutes, but are they as good? i mean for dry white wine, one of them was the juice from canned mushrooms. lol.
Aldi's $3.99 "Winking Owl" Cabernet and Chardonnay...it's drinkable but a lot like 2 Buck Chuck from Trader Joe's (Which Aldi's owns by the way). Canned or bottled juices won't get the same result - but you can make a nice sauce without the wine -- takes some imagination.
You can use vinegar (I make my own) - but good vinegar costs as much as inexpensive wine.
