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!

Yay I love all the comments, now I have more of an idea. I know nothing about wine, so I don’t care if its red or white! I just saw labels saying “white wines” & “fruity red wines” & then “red wines” so I figured the red ones were the fruity ones?
It looks like the Reisling is the best choice, so I’ll try that :). I live kinda close to a place to taste wine, but I don’t think I could get the time to go there, or at least go there w/o Fiance knowing about it. I didn’t know Fiance really wanted wine until last night… so now I have very little time to get my secret mission accomplished!

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

i would say moscato d’asti , i think it tasted like a sparkling cider almost!

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!
