Glühwein is a hot spiced red wine. I've had it in the Netherlands at Christmastime. It's fantastic.
How it can be non-alcoholic, however, is beyond me.

What Karen said in her first line. (Except the part about getting it over there at Christmas -- it was Dutch friends here in the States. Glog -- with the round Scandanavian umlaut HTML isn't giving me today -- is a close cousin from further north.)
If they actually, truly, heat it up to boiling or close enough then cool to serve I guess it'd be close. Although Jenever is hard to kill (like the Aquavit in glog.) But more often than not, someone just puts it in a lukewarm pot for a few minutes then tells their guests, "Oh don't worry *wink* I cooked it first."

I believe it's also a character in Sherwood Smith's Once a Pricess series.

Jefe, you can buy non-alcoholic glogg and gluehwine. It's basically the same recipe, except instead of brandy (for Glogg, for Gluehwine, it's, um, wine), you add in berry juice (or cider). We used to have it as kids every Christmas.
And then we'd add the brandy ;-)
