Default Ethanol Reduction - will oxygen work?

I'm fermenting beverages and want to reduce the ethanol content by about a half of a percentage point. Will oxygen aeration help with the reduction of ethanol?

Any other low tech wine industry solutions for lowering such a small percentage?

As always, I appreciate the assistance.

Dilution, probably the most low tech of all!

Oxygen + wine = BAD

Yep, that's the only thing I can think of. Add some de-oxygenated water to dilute .5% ABV.
