    Sweet wine certainly has its place. I enjoyed an episode of NPR’s Splendid Table last summer in which they discussed what great options a wine-lover and cocktail-lover has in the hot summer months, and there are plenty of appropriate times to enjoy a delicious sweet wine. I do love a good port almost any time, too (except of course with dinner).

    Drier wines, of course, have much greater potential for complex and interesting flavors. When a wine tastes sweet, it can’t really taste like very many other things. When you’re in a more contemplative mood and want to think about what you’re drinking, or pair something with food, dry is the way to go.

    I cannot stand sweet wine.  FI likes a sweet desert wine but we love dry crisp wines.  They can be fruity but not sugary.

    Definately dry. I used to like sweet back before I liked wine. Now that I’ve turned into a wine drinker, I can’t stand 99% of the sweet stuff. Very few sweet wines are done “right”. (One of the the only sweet wines I’ll drink is Ethiopian honey wine made in a local Ethopian restaurant, now that’s a sweet wine I love! But most of them, no.)

    It depends.  Sweet goes with desserts and after dinner drinks.  I love a good moscato or port.

    With food – you’ll want to stay away from sweet wines as they will overpower the food.
