I’m debating on the best types of wine to get for my DIY bar and I’m not sure what is most popular.
I know I want to get Moscato because it’s sweet (and I LOVE it) and a white zinfindel but what do most other people like.

I am not a fan of too sweet whites – I am a pinot grigio girl!

Yellow Tail pinot grigio is my fave!! And lucky me, jumbo bottles are only about 11 dollars at Target!

I’m a big pinot grigio fan. Sauv Blanc is my second favorite. White Zinfindel is really not a great quality of wine… I would probably lean away from that.

I prefer white and Pinot grigio is my go-to wine. But lately I have also been getting into riesling.

Can’t really go wrong with Red Merlot (1 of the wines I picked). Also picked Cabernet Sauv. and Shiraz. <– also cannot go wrong with that.

MMMMMMMM…..Sauv Blanc. I think its the best wine by itself, meaning without food.

I’m a sweet white wine drinker and really like Rieslings and Gewurztraminer. For red I like pinot noirs, but I can drink just about anything!

My favorite is Gewurztraminer. I especially like it from Fetzer Wineries.

Chianti is my absolute favorite, Shiraz is my go-to though, because good Chianti can be hard to find.

I’d probably get a sweet white (Moscato), a dry white (Pinot Grigio) and a red blend (I’m not a big fan of merlot). That way all of your guests are accounted for. 🙂 This is what we’re planning, and even though I like reds, I think most people don’t or will be happy with a red blend.

I really like White Merlot. Beringer has a decent white merlot that won’t break the bank. It’s perfect for the semi-sweet kind of gal. :o)

White zinfandel and moscato are both *really* similar… I wouldn’t do both unless you are having a very large variety of wines, since they’re both sweet wines that will appeal primarily to non-wine drinkers. I think Rieslings and Gewurtzremeiners are way too similar to the moscatos, and won’t provide enough variety to your guests who might not like sweeter wines.
To keep it very straightforward, people usually do a red (either cabernet sauvignon or merlot) and a white (either chardonnay or sauvignon blanc), and then maybe include the sweeter/more dessert-ish wines since you like them and plan on including them anyway?
My favorite is pinot noir, but a good pinot noir is great and a bad one is really, really bad, so it’s hard to get right for big parties. I also love shiraz, but since it’s less common, it’s less safe. I like pinot grigios and fume blancs, but, again, you’ve already got two light wines so I’d get a heavier white for some variety. I’d get a cab and a chardonnay (although personally I don’t like chardonnay 😉 but it seems to be the most popular white and you’ll have another white and a blush wine to choose from anyway) to make sure you have your bases covered.
