Feel good wine

Posted by Beah, Mar 13, 2014.

Can anyone help me to find wine that taste good on the tongue and my idea of good is sweet but not so sweet I'd get a belly ache but enough to make me feel good if you know what I mean and is able to drink all night if I want. I know to each is own but Im sure someone can assist. I also don't want to spend a ton of money. A ton is around 20 bucks. so keep it under. Thanks

Sorry, Beah, I'm going to pull your leg a bit.  It sounds like you're looking for the "Goldilocks Wine"--not too much, not too little, just right.

There is a very popular wine out there, these days called Apothic.  There is an Apothic White and an Apothic Red.  The other thing that is widely available these days is Moscato.  These will come in under $20.  Have you tried them?  Are they too sweet?  If you come back and tell us that these are too sweet, they we can give you some other ideas.

Another reasonable starting point would be German rieslings. Know a lot of people who've used them as their gateway into the world of good wines, not just feel-good buzzmakers. Which they can provide, too... ;-)

You can find several more-than-decent options for < $20, even in this day and age. I'm running out the door right now so no time to do a search for the best half-dozen in the US marketplace right now. Perhaps someone else will weigh in.

Where are you located?

Try Wolf Blass Red Label Riesling. Not as sweet as moscato, in my opinion.

Averagely cost <US20 per bottle.

Happy drinking.

2012 Donnhoff Estate Riesling should do the trick. Upgrade to one of their Kabinett's in the $25 range if the budget allows.

Adobe Clayhouse Red. It's a pleasing blend barely cracking the double-digit barrier. The white version is also solid.

A Barbera will do just fine for any occasion, and if you want to keep sipping, put away the car keys!  You shouldn't have to pay over $25.00 for a bottle.

Clicking on a person's name will give you their information, so according to that Beah is in Cincinnati.

You can even click on a person's little icon photo thing and sometimes get a bigger version.   Beah, I can't help you.  My best advice is to go to the store(s) near you and systematically eliminate the less expensive wines they carry, by trial and error.  I'm sure out of ten $10-15 wines, you'll find one that is best for you.
