    There is a difference between dry wines (which are fuller bodied and more bitter tasting) and sweet wines. Sauvignon blanc are normally dry wines, which is not what you want at all…Go back to the vendor and ask for a dessert wine(which will be very sweet) or at least something that is not dry. California wines are known for being fruity, so I’d try to find a Chardonnay from that area.

    I am not a fan of wines either, but if i have to drink it, I really enjoy rieslings. But be careful, some of them are much more dry. I prefer sweeter wines. 

    If you like sweet, try this:

    Zinfandel! I want to enjoy wine so badly, but I find most to be way too bitter as well. Zinfandel has always been the best for me – I find it rather sweet.

    Chardonnay and Vinho Verde… which niether you have listed.

    I like vino verde because it’s crisp and tart with a hint of fruit and a tiny tiny hint of bubbles. And you can never go wrong with a good Chardonnay.

    Viognier is my favourite white grape. I wouldn’t go as far as drinking dessert wine as a regular drink as anything good will be expensive and it is hideously high in sugar.

    What about a German (or German-style) riesling or gewurstraminer? Sweeter than a dry wine but not a dessert wine.

    Pinot Grigio is my favorite.  I don’t find it to be too sweet like Zinfandel is.

    Darling Husband and I don’t drink a lot of wine but everything we do drink is above average quality. Unfortunately, I doubt much of it is available in the States.

    Have you heard of albarino? It’s very light and refreshing, with a bit of sweetness. I’m blanking on brand though.

    I’m surprised no one voted for moscato yet! I LOVE moscato, but I think I slightly prefer riesling or gewurtztraminer. (which are a bit less sweet. Moscato is like the queen of sweet wines… if you like sweet wine, or don’t like most standard wine, you have GOT to try moscato!)

    ETA: some friends brought us back some Sauternes from France… now THERE is some delicious, sweet, dessert wine!

    Yes you are filling the cups too much.  As for a reccomendation, i buy most of my wines from trade joes or barefoot (a california wine brand).  If you are looking for a sweeter wine i suggest you try pinot grigio, chardonnay, or reisling.

    @pinkgreenandyellow:  5 glasses is about what you get out of a standard bottle.

    I personally like white wines (although I drink red as well). Like noted by PPs, sauvignan blancs can be somewhat dry, and if you are that sensative to “bitter” taste, its probably better for you to go with chardonneys, if those are still too bitter then go with reislings, which are usually very fruity and sweet.

    @bowsergirl:  To be clear, you mean WHITE zinfandel.  Zinfandel is a red wine.
