Is there any difference?

No. The cooking process burns off the alcohol anyway.

I bought some non-alcoholic red wine, it’s fricking awful, not good for anything except pouring down the drain! 🤣

Yes and actually alcohol does not fully evaporate in cooking. Depends on the recipe. Sometimes just sub with apple juice or grape juice or even cranberry juice if its a sweet recipe. You could also sub with stock.you need to look at the flavours of the dish and what sort of wine the recipe asked for and why so you can replicate it.

The difference is the taste!

Don't see why not, although it's generally sweeter. You can also get wine stock pots that are made from dealcoholised wine.

Jack Monroe recently suggested using strong black tea in place of wine in recipes where you didn't want to use alcohol as it gives the same tannin like properties - haven't tried it yet but might be worth a shot

No, as already said it's foul.
If you're don't want alcohol, just leave it out & possibly add something else to enhance the flavour.
Or find another recipe.
If you don't normally drink wine, you can get very small bottles in Aldi, Sainsbo, etc & freeze what you don't use.

I don't mind alcohol, it's just that I happened to have a load of non alcoholic wine left (because it was farkin' 'orrible and so I didn't drink it) and wondered if it would ruin hte meal.

It was red, I put it in a bolognese type sauce and it kind of worked... eventually.
