This is great, I’m totally going to save this and use it when I go wine shopping
Cool stuff, I’m totally clueless about wines so this should come in handy. Thanks… I’m bookmarking this.

Only one of these lacks the ability to make you violent, destroy your liver and kill you. Alcohol consumers deserve the right to switch to the safest recreational drug in the world – cannabis. Don’t vote for any candidate not willing to legalize adult cannabis sales!
I totally understand your concern as a former pothead myself (though for financial reasons, I have recently quit, and I have not had a drop of alcohol in months). However, this is a post for wine, not a post for alcoholics. Time and place for everything my stoner friend

Don’t forget about chianti !! It’s my favorite
What about nalewka? Porzeczkowa is the best.
Also bimber is zajebisty. I drink it all the time to the point of being completely najebany.
This chart has been very helpful!
She said moscatto. Blegh… I think it falls right between sweet cherry and pure honey
great, so confusing when I buy wines, most of those in the stores don’t even know, this will be a great guide!
How about something in the top right corner? Sweet and RED
not possible because of the tannis from the red grape skin which makes it red and also bitter. there’s a great article about it on this site
Actually in sweet reds you have Lambrusco, which has been cultivated since the Etruscan pre-Roman era and is still very common in Italy today, (but make sure it’s a dolce or amabile variety not a secco which is very dry), and Spanish Sangria, (though technically much of Sangria’s sweetness comes from fruit and fruit juices added to the wine.)

so i dont know much about wine. Would somebody be able to explain why drinking dry tasting wine would be pleasant? Like wouldn’t a fruity wine taste better? -Definitely don’t anything about wine but would like too. Thanks
It’s personal preference just like how some people like to drink coffee black or whiskey straight. Also it’s an acquired taste for dryer wine.
Just discovered this. It’s fabulous! Thanks!
I work in a liquor store and don’t know any of this. Where does Pinot Grigio, Pinot blanc, Malbec, Gewürztraminer, sovereign opal, and voignier go?
omg its xo xarap
Why is demi-sec (half-dry) drier than extra dry?
The scale goes the other way, so it’s sweeter.
“demi-sec” means “half dry”, which should be less dry than “extra dry” i.e. more sweet…
Well, I will try a white zinfandel. Is it sweet enough to match a dark chocolate dessert?
If you want a sweet wine, try a Moscato, it’s definitely sweeter than a white zin
Trying to find a sweet red to add in to my chocolate cake, any suggestions? Thank you
Gordon Estate 2011 Washington Cabernet
I tried a wine years ago, it taste almost like a very light gran marnier.
Can anyone tell me the name of it?
