Both rice wine and rice vinegars are popular ingredients in dishes all over Asia. Although the two have very similar names they are slightly different. Both are made with fermented rice, however they serve different purposes.
Rice wine vinegar is typically used as an alcoholic drink which can also be used for cooking whereas rice vinegar is non alcoholic, sweeter and normally used for salad dressing and pickling vegetables.
Although the two do share some similarities they also have many differences so it is generally best not to swap them. Instead try using a pale dry sherry or a dry white wine if you are unable to get your hands on any rice wine vinegar.
