Sorbitol is one of the alcohols present in trace amounts in grapes and wines, and closely related to glucose. It has a slightly sweet flavor, is highly soluble in water, and gives liquids a sense of body when present in high quantities.

Some dishonest wine bottlers have taken advantage of the fact that sorbitol can be produced quickly and affordably from a variety of agricultural raw sources to boost customer approval of thin, acidic, everyday wines.

Although sorbitol is safe for humans, most wine regulations forbid its use.
