Favorite Wine?

Miss Nessa Miss Nessa
I'm new to the word of drinking. I did not have my first taste of alcohol until I was 22 years old hahaha.

I've come to realize I do not like the taste of things like vodka. I had my first taste of wine the other night, and I fell in love. I was able to get a good buzz and the taste did not bother me at all.

So, this week me and the boyfriend are going to have to house to ourself, and I wanted to get some wine, but I do not know even where to start.

I was wondering if you do drink wine, what would be your favorite?

If you want something sweet I would go with something such as a reisling. They have a nice fruity flavor. Rose is another sweet wine. If you get a good one, it tastes like strawberries.

Some other good wines.
Moscato -- It's also a sweet wine. One of my favorites and a great beginners wine.
pinot grigio -- Not too sweet, not too dry.

I'm like you-I actually didn't start drinking on a regular basis until I started working at my parents' restaurant about 7 months ago. Heck, I didn't even know how to open a bottle of wine before then! I started out tasting our wines (all from Italy) and have branched out quite a bit since then. It's so interesting how my tastes have changed. I used to like light, simple wines, and now I'm really into heavier reds like a cabernet or red zinfandel style. The only way you'll find out what you like is to just start trying wines. That's the best advice I can give. Do you have a Trader Joe's near you? They are a mecca of great budget-friendly wines. My general rule-and this is as a wine lover-is not to spend over $10 a bottle. Sometimes I go a bit over, but honestly you can find some amazing values for under $10.

I would second the recommendation for Pinot Grigio (or Pinot Gris) or Riesling. Washington State Rieslings tend to be very balanced and not overly sweet. Moscato is semi-sparkling, which you may or may not want.. I could go on and on, can you tell this is a passion of mine? PM me if you have any questions.

Muscato - Sweet dessert wine, white
Riesling - Semi-sweet, white

Most beginning wine drinkers go with white wine and sweets. Dries and Reds seem to be a little too heavy in flavor for the beginning taste buds.

If you have any Nebraska wines where you are at, I can BOLDLY recommend any of the sweet wines from Soaring Wings Winery. They even have a great selection of sweet reds--very unique and low-cost selections!!

I used to work there and am a loyal fan

My favorite wine is Conundrum, it's a white no others can match. Or you can try Gewürztraminer, another very aromatic and sweet white.
