OOh, yes, Barefoot has good, low cost wines.  They do have some sparkling whites.  Moscato is very good too.  Here is a great California one:  Martin Weyrich Moscato Allergro.  It is SO wonderful…my favorite sweet thing to drink in the summer.  Don’t know where you live but it’s worth looking for!

If you do want red, I’d recommend Lambrusco.  It’s easy for non or beginning wine drinkers.  And cheap.

beware, a traditional moscato isn’t always sparkling(not a fan of barefoot myself) but any other moscato d’asti i’ve tried have all been delicious!

I’m really picky about wine.  I love Reislings, however I my favorite wines are locally grown fruit wines (i.e. anything other than grapes!).  Strawberry, cherry, apricot, raspberry, etc. etc.  They tend to be very sweet.  I’m guessing there are wineries in your area (often times they sell their products at local stores/ farmer’s markets – at least around here).

I second Lambrusco.  It’s a red wine, but totally sweet.  It’s what I learned to drink wine on.

I third Lambrusco. It is very delicious and is very easy to drink. Not dry at all. It is extremely cheap. You’re supposed to drink it chilled which makes seem like less of a red wine.

Shiraz. I don’t like wine at all but this does not taste like most wines and most people tend to like it even if they don’t normally drink wine. It is fairly inexpensive in comparison as well.

I would DEFINITELY recommend a moscato d’asti! I don’t like wine, but I’m addicted to that stuff – Fiance and I drink it all the time! It tastes kind of like sparkling grape juice – amazing!

And if you really don’t like the flavor of alcohol, just look for one with a lower % of alcohol!
