Worzel's Orange Wine is what WOW stands for.
Basically making wine from supermarket fruit juices and red grape juice. White grape juice on its own is like hen's teeth so most use red grape juice (RGJ).

I have been thinking about this for a while.
Hear me out....

WOW stands for Worzels Orange Wine right, but Drop the name Worzel as it is not really relevant in these current times, Orange, well very few make orange wine simply because it is extremely volatile whilst under fermentation, and getting hold of white grape juice (which is one of the main ingredients of Worzel's Orange Wine) is virtually impossible these days.

I think the new name for this style of wine should be Supermarket Juice Wine or SJW. Voila.

What do you think? Answers on a postcard to Home Brew Forum.......

I have referred to it as supermarket juice wine for years as orange wine tastes nasty (we only made one batch) and as you asay White Grape juice has been AWAL for years.

This has been my signature for a few years - How to make Supermarket Juice Wine - HERE.

If you follow the link in my signature it takes you to the huge WOW thread which was also renamed to "Supermarket Juice Wine Recipes and Wurzel's Orange Wine (WOW)" a few years ago.
