        hi, these are good ideas... here's another: when I make risotto, and don't have wine, I use just a little golden balsamic vinegar with a tiny pinch of sugar to dissolve... it works well! Of course, it doesn't drink as well, but the flavors are compatible, and I've had no complaints so far.
        Enjoy!
