  • IT depends on if you like sweet or not. If you like sweet I would go with a Riesling or a zinfandel. If you aren't a big fan of sweet I would go with a Pinot Gris or a Chardonay. Those of course are the white wines which are a little milder than red wines. If you aren't a wine drinker usually, I would stick with white wine.

  • Sutter Home White Zinfandel. Very smooth wine. Easy to drink for us who don't really like it. Chilled of course :)

  • My favorite is Redwood Creek's Pinot Noir. It's not expensive at all.

  • I prefer sweet wines. My favorite is Cupcake Vineyards Moscato for around $10 a bottle. When I need to go a little cheaper I usually buy Barefoot Moscato. It's surprisingly really good for the price. I've tried other types of wines in both brands and everything I tried was good.

  • Try a sweet wine...Once you go into the store...ask them for a sweet wine.
    Ice Wine is extremely sweet ...so you might not want to go that sweet. Ice Wine is also pretty expensive.

  • I love Oliver soft red wine but it is local place and not sure how far they go (when we were 5 hours away they only had 3 kinds as opposed to the many around here). It is quite sweet and actually more like a juice but I love it.
