Hi bees. I found an incredible deal on yellow tail wine, it’s on sale and after a rebate it’s $1.99 a bottle. I know it’s not the fanciest wine, but it’s not Franzia either. Our guests aren’t wine snobs, but I’m unsure what types of wine people like in particular. We would like to get a red and a white. What wines do you like best?

I think Pinot noir is a pretty safe red because it’s kind of light to appeal to most red wine drinkers. Pinot grigio is a safe white in my opinion because its not too dry or too sweet, usually..

I always feel like yellow tail is a great middle of the road wine, and u cant go wrong with it if you are trying to please a bunch of people… If you are looking for another reasonably priced wine, try costco branch wine 8.99 for 1.5L and it tastes great too 🙂

Shiraz or merlot if it’s a red, sauvignon blanc (from France, not the perfume ones from New Zealand) without a doubt if I drink white.
A suggestion is to get the cheap wine and serve that as the “second bottle”. Whenever we have guests and we expect that we’ll drink more than one bottle, we buy a cheaper second one. After a glass or two you don’t notice the taste as much, and for a party people are just generally happy as long as they have something in their glasses.

@hollyberry4: +1. I think Pinot Noir is the safest choice because it’s relatively low acidity while still being full-bodied. It’s got a little bite, but not too much. It will please 99% of red wine drinkers. I love a good, dry wine but Pinot is still one of my faves. My mom, on the other hand, won’t drink anything too dry and LOVES Pinot.

I’m not much of a wine drinker really, but I do drink a lot of moscato

Shameless bump for the evening people? 🙂

@sofialovesmikey: Yellow Tail has some really good wine!
My personal favorites are Pinot Noir and Reisling, but I wouldn’t go with Reisling for the white because it’s too sweet generally. Shiraz is SOOOOO dry! I love me some tannins but I can NOT drink Shiraz. Pinot is generally smoother and easier to pair.
I picked Pinot Grigio for the white, but I think Yellowtail has a Viognier, which would be a great pick.

@sofialovesmikey: If you can get a deal, go for it! In my experience people will happily drink whatever free wine is in front of them 🙂

What a deal I would definitely go with that

@sofialovesmikey: out of curiosity, have you had yellow tail wine before? We frequently buy wines in their price range, but we really don’t like yellow tail- for some reason they just all taste bad to us, and we have tried different varieties. I’d check it out yourself, first, and if you like it, go for it!

@sofialovesmikey: I’ve organized several events involving large wine orders, and Pinot Grigio is by far the most popular white wine. As for red, it’s a toss-up, but I’m partial to Cabernet Sauvignon.

Moscato or riesling for white! I don’t like red wine so I have no opinion on that end.
