Any Great Substitutes for Red and White Wine in Cooking?

Far too often I've passed up some wonderful looking braising, poaching and sauce recipes when the formula calls for more than a Tbs or so of wine. A tiny amount in a salad dressing is OK, but any more than that just does not work for me. I'm looking for substitutes for both robust reds and whites, (sweet and dry) for kitchen use. Of Note: The de-alcoholized wines like Graham Kerr (The Galloping Gourmet) used to promote are +/- OK, but nearly impossible to find and a bit expensive for what they are. I would prefer readily available substitutes or perhaps combinations of a a few of things that will work just as well. Thank you.
