I have a terrible reaction to wine so I leave it out and add broth and/or water.

As BB says, broth & water are good options.
If the recipe needs or can stand a sweet note, try white grape juice or some other fruit juice...diluted if necessary.

Depending on what you are making, a squeeze of fresh lemon will add a bright note (for example to sauteéd mushrooms). It's what I use when I don't have wine leftover and don't want to open a bottle for a small amount.

Um, he is not recovered he is "in recovery" and will be for the rest of his life, or one day at a time.
