Bah. People and their frilly white wines! I prefer Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot myself.

But, as far as sweet whites, definitely Moscato and Reisling. Then it's just a matter of finding a brand you like. There are also some pretty sweet blush wines.

Definitely going to check out some dessert wines.
I've had all of Linganore dessert wines before. The strawberry is very sweet and fruity. The blueberry one reminded me of pop tarts. All of their fruity wines, the mountain white and mountain pink are sweet.

If you are interested in whites, Riesling is my favourite. I love Columbia Valley Riesling - they make a few different varieties, and they are cheapish.

For a red, Moscato is great. I think Olive Garden's house blend is Moscato. Otherwise Barefoot (I think) was okay. Not a big red person.

If you want a really sweet wine, try Taylor Fladgate Port Wine. It's a dessert wine and is so dangerously sweet. It's quite rich, though, so I can't drink too much of it.

Cheers!

I've heard good things about some blush wines.

Anyone have experience with Sutter Home? I've heard mixed reviews about them.

My absolute favorite wine is one that's put out by a vineyard here in Virginia. Rebec Vineyards' Autumn Glow.

It's a blend of Pinot Noir and Riesling, and is a lovely wine with just enough Pinot Noir to balance the sweetness of the Riesling.

I checked out their website to read the description of that wine and found out that they deliver! ~happy dance~ May have to order a bottle of that it sounds perfect. I don't want something too sweet but sweet if that makes sense. I don't mind a bit of spice and bite. Have you ever had their Sweet Briar Rose or Landmark Sweet? Their descriptions sound nice as well.

Have not had this in 35 years or so



But we used to call it Mad Dog 20/20 back then.

I remember it being pretty sweet
