I’m usually pretty cheap when it comes to wine. I end up getting Barefoot Regaling, any of thier moscatos, or sweet red. 

I also get Brotherhoods Riesling or May wine. Those may be harder to find since Brotherhood is a local winery.

I love a French wine (which I get often at a German restaurant we frequent, go figure) called Gewurztraminer. Has some pear notes I believe, not too sweet. A little spicy, even. I discovered that it’s only $12 a bottle at our local wine store and I was over the moon.

An Italian Prosecco called Conco d’Oro Millesimato, crisp finish with green apples and banana. Unusual but amazing.

A jammy, blackberry pinot noir from the Georgian Republic called Shuchmann.

I will pretty much drink anything haha. I looove me some wine. I bought some cheapie stuff that was on sale the other day – naked grape rose. Surprisingly good, not so sweet as most roses are.

My favourite wine to buy is a red blend from the Okanagan called Diabolica. My favourite wine to drink (and NOT buy) is Tommasi Amarone, which is a Valpolicella. It’s more expensive, so I like drinking it, but don’t like paying for it LOL.

The Cupcake Moscato is delish as well.. and the Moscato di Asti fom them!

If you want to try some red wines, Oliver Soft Red is a great one. I’m from the midwest and it’s an Indiana winery, so I’m not sure if it’s just a regional wine, though.. but if you can find it definitely try it! (cheap too – like $8/bottle!) Walmart and Kroger carry it around here. Also Easley Reggae Red is another good sweet red wine.

Stefano Farina Italia Moscato di Asti is my all time favorite and my go to if I don’t see any others that I want to try – it’s normally at every liquor store or grocery store you find.

I only really like sweet wines so those are all of my favorites..

But I also ventured out to try some semi sweet/semi dry wines on a wine tour last summer and found that I do like some catawba wines, and traminette wines. There are lots of different varieties of the two, most of which I enjoyed, if you’re wanting to try something new. (sorry, no brand names to give you of those..unless you happen to be from the Midwest – all that I tried were from very small wineries by Indy)

I usually go for a red blend. Apothic Red is a good, cheap go-to.

I can’t do sweet wines, they give me a headache. I hardly consider moscato and the like to be wines at all.

I like a variety of wines.. varietal doesn’t guarantee much.  E.g. I LOVE a good pinot noir, and couldn’t care less about anything mediocre and worse.  (I haven’t found a Pinot I like for less than $45 a bottle..)  Most merlots are solid, and probably what I’ll get if i’m looking to spend $10 or less on a bottle.  Sames goes with a Zinfandel.  

But honestly, I like most wines: Carmenere, Bordeaux, Chianti, Nebbiolo, Amarone… I just want good wine.

Generally what I’m craving in a red is a velvety mouth feel and good balance–something not too sweet, nor too dry, nor too tanic, nor too acidic.  This is particularly true if I’m looking for something to drink alone: most wines can be corrected with a good pairing if they’re not perfectly balanced (some wines are irredeemable, though).  I like jammy wines more than fruity wines, and notes of tobacco and oak tend to sit well with me.. 

As for whites, I tend to prefer dry whites.. I like oak (even if its gone out of fashion) and dislike mineral-y or acidic whites quite a bit.  In fact, in general I tend to dislike whites more frequently. 

A dry, bold rose is always a pleasant surprise.
