I like cupcake wines, specifically the red velvet one. I don't know the ins and outs of wine as I have a friend who works at a wine store and picks things for me and my agility peeps, but the cupcake wines seem to be the ones i like.

Also a nice fruity pinot grigio is also good for the novice wine drinker.

Yellow Tail's Merlot was VERY strong, IMO. That was not an enjoyable, relaxing wine. That was a "get trashed" wine. I had to cut it with juice. I haven't tried their others.

I like Little Penguin's Merlot, though. But that's all I got. I've heard a lot of people suggest Barefoot, but I can't personally vouch for it yet.

I've never done a tasting- I really should, though. That's a really good idea.

I try wine whenever I go to an event it's offered at (holiday parties, charity banquets, etc.), and I always feel weird when I take a sip and don't drink the rest. It makes me feel like such a little kid every time!

TBH all the wines I've tried at events were icky to me. The tastings I've done are super fun and each time I go I always find a new wine I like.

Sounds like you need to find a type of wine that you like (not necessarily a brand yet). Moscatos are a good option, as has been suggested. Pinot Grigios are usually sweet and fruity too. A reisling is a dessert wine that is really sweet. Look for a blush (a mix between red/white) that is a softer taste, usually.

No reason to spend more than $10 a bottle to get a tasty wine.

I promise I have THE BEST wine for wine haters (like me, lol) it's called Fuke. It's Japanese plum wine. A bottle is $12 at the liquor store. It tastes like freaking grape juice! I love it. Another good one that's not quite so sweet is called like Barefoot or something. I love the sweet stuff, though. And I don't meant sweet by wine people standards, cause when they say a wine is "sweet" it's really not, lol. I mean sweet by anyone's standards. Fuke is as sweet as welch's.

I wish I knew what brand/type of red wine they serve at my church. It's freakin delish.

That's all I can contribute lol.

I like sweet

Muscato is yummy, yes, yellowtail and barefoot are both cheap, good and should be easy to find.

I like Rieslings too....sometimes a white zinfandel is ok.

My personal favorite is St. James Red Velvet but I am not sure how big of a distribution they have.

I like wine cold, or at least the ones I drink

Copper moon. They have a few different kinds and I think the wine starts at 11 dollars. That's what we relax to in the evening.
