I’m going out to dinner tonight and it’s a BYOB….so the other couples are bringing wine. My Darling Husband and I don’t like wine. The only kind I can stand is a dessert type wine, Moscato di Asti I think it was called. But I can’t drink a dessert wine at dinner, or can I? What’s a sweet wine I might like? Or maybe just bring beer (we both love beer)

If it’s BYOB, just bring what you like. I know none of my friends would care! Who cares if you drink a super sweet wine with dinner? Or beer? My friends love to tease me about some of my ‘lame’ drink choices, but they don’t have to drink it, I do!

Di Asti is the carbonated version of the moscato.. you can drink a dessert wine for dinner for sure.. a white moscato with fish and seafood as to not over power it..and a red moscato for meats and such. Depends on what you are eating.. Try a red moscato.. its not carbonated and it tastes just as good (maybe a bit sweeter than the di asti ) and no one can tell what type of wine you have in your glass lol If you like di astis you should also try a nice ice wine ( german- the best.. canadian- second best but still good.. there are also californian ones too) cheers!

Moscato is pefectly fine, and great for non wine drinkers! Or Cava or Prosecco…Not as sweet but good white sparkling wines.

@MacFaniam24: Thats the only kind of wine I drink too. Tastes kinda like a mixture of ginger ale and champagne to me. White zin isn’t too terrible but I agree with the PP’s, if you’re a beer girl, bring beer. Liquor girl, bring that. I’m a beer girl and I’m never shy about my alcohol preferences.

That’s SUPER sweet…I personally wouldn’t be able to drink it with dinner. I would bring maybe a sweet Riesling? Or I second the suggestion of Prosecco, which is kind of like sweeter champagne.

Oh, I forgot to add. If you like sweet sparkling wines, you should try Martini Asti. I think it’s a 7. My sister and mom hate wine and they loved this!

@MacFaniam24: Definitely Moscato! It is light and sweet! Very good for non-wine drinkers!

You can also try Red Cat. I am not sure what type of wine it is, but it is a sweet red. I have some friends who really like this and they don’t care for dry wine.

I’m not a wine drinker either but I do like blush wines. Sometimes I can stomach white zin but looks like I should check out Moscato.

If you don’t drink wine and you can’t stand the taste, then don’t drink it just because everyone else is. Bring what you prefer, if that is beer or something else.
That said, I hate wine, but on very rare occasions I can bring myself to stomach zinfandels, whether white or fruit flavors. But when given the choice, I’ll take other alcohol instead and I won’t drink something just because other people are if I don’t like the beverage in question.

Red Bicycle is another good one. I think that it is a rose wine. Its light and sweet. Moscato is fine to drink with dinenr though. We do it all the time, its the only wine that Fiance will drink

A girlfriend of mine told me about a blended wine by Cupcake Vineyards called “Red Velvet”. It’s really good. Goes with desserts or dark red meats great! Plus it’s really inexpensive.
A departure from what we usually have (we don’t drink often, but when we have it with a nice dinner it’s usually either a cab or a pinot noir from Williamette Valley.

I really like Birds and Bees sweet white wine. It’s very good…not quite so sweet as dessert wine but more juice-like than normal wine.
