I want to get into drinking wine

but I've never really had any before and I don't have time for a wine tasting until spring. The wine I've had before I really didn't enjoy, but there was a very fruity one I had that I really enjoyed, I just don't remember what it was. Any suggestions or favorites you would recommend?

  • White Zinfandel since you like fruity also find a local wine shop and ask them for suggestions one of my favorites is San Margherite or Cakebread Cellars

  • Try a blush wine. Thats what I started out drinking. They are the pink wimes. Make sure it is chilled. I also like Arbor Mist, they are really fruity.

  • I think a nice White Zinfandel would be a good place to start. They tend to be a little fruity and sweeter than some.
