I'm more of a dry wine fan as well, but I'd recommend a Zinfandel, or Gewürtztraminer (white wine) for the sweeter fruitier variety.

DH drinks a concord wine from Pennsylvania called Sir Walter's Red from Franklin Hill Vinyards. They do ship, and have quite a few sweet wines.

Moscato, like I recommended in the other thread. If you can find a sparkling moscato, bonus! Brachetto is the "red version" of moscato. For brands, Beviamo, Barefoot Wines, and Beringer (I don't know why they all start with B...) are good without being super expensive too.

As much as I hate to admit it because I can't stand Ed Hardy, the Ed Hardy Sangria is REALLY good if you can find it. And incredibly cheap for how good it is.

If you want to be adventurous, I would look for fruit wines and make sure it says sweet or dessert. I've had dry blueberry wine and it wasn't good, but a sweet blueberry is awesome. I've also had peach, blackberry, and the raspberry I talked about in the other thread. I don't like elderberry personally, but some people love it.

ETA: If you really want something grape juice-y, you might try the Barefoot Wines Cabernet. I've never had it myself but I have heard it supposedly tastes like Welches haha. But I believe it's a dry...

I am not a huge wine drinker, but I always get several bottles from Oliver Winery when I'm visiting my parents. Current favs, I also hate dry wines lol, are:

Oliver Winery Soft Red, which is considered Semi-Sweet:


Creekbend Traminette, which is really light tasting:


and Creekbend Catawba, which is a nice rose wine:


All of them can be bought online and shipped to most states. Website is: http://www.oliverwinery.com/index.cfm

My rules are....

White is minging.
Rose is for socialising.
Red is every day wine!
The bigger the dimple in the bottom the better (not sure why, but we like this rule because its fun).
Expensive wine doesn't = nice taste.
I go for anything that's half price or reduced - bargains always = better taste lol!

And now I want a glass of wine!!!! And I only have vodka.... Oh well, when in Rome...

Mead! It's honey wine. Can't get much sweeter than that.

I'm also a fan of Rieslings.
