Hello ladies. I guess i have a few questions, im not much of a drinker infact i havent drank n a few years. but i thought since i am single now i may have boyfriends over (who of course will be older haha) and i might like to have wine with dinner sitting infront of the fireplace etc. Are there wines out there that dont have too much "alcohol flavor" something more fruity? i was thinking of checking out a winery or something when i get home and go on a taste test to find the right one for me LOL

do any of u have any recommendations?

(btw, i am movin back to houston next sunday..will not be on much at first but gradually will find the time)

thanks for all your help

Michele

I'm not much of a wine drinker, but find white zinfindel okay (I'm SURE I butchered that spelling). It has a fruity taste to it. Good luck with everything.

Sweetie, I don't drink at all so I have no idea. But I did want to let you know that I'm thinking about you. I hope that everything works out good and that you can be happy again soon.

I have found a Cafe Chardonnay wine made by Gallo, Twin Valley to be light and pleasing to the taste.

Thanks for asking. I am holding in there too, but unfortunately am in the same boat as you. He told me Thursday that it is over and he wants a divorce. We are fixing up our house to sell. It's been a horrible weekend, but in an odd way, it's like a huge weight has been lifted. I am june671 on AIM. I work nights this summer, but am online a lot in the mornings, or at 2:00am if you're up LOL. I actually AM online a lot in the 2-3:00am range since I am just getting home from work.

Hope you are doing okay.

I don't like dry wines and prefer sweet ones. I like White Zin and Lambrusco,this is a dark red wine but very sweet. Also the Wild Vines line is fruity. I dislike Merlot but in this line it is sweet. They have fruit juice in them and are not highly alcohoic like others. They also have a mix out now kinda like a slushy drink mix that you mix with your wine. Very good if you like fruity cold drinks on a hot day. Your best bet is to say with a rose color wine they seem to usually be sweet and if you get headaches from drinking you should stay away from red it seem to trigger headaches for some people.
