Contrary to what you may see around you and in the media, wine isn’t everyone’s cup of tea.
Some may find the drink too tart, some may not be a fan of the tannins and the bitter aftertaste, and other people may just avoid wine altogether.
In actuality, not all wines taste sharp and sour.
There is such a thing as sweet wine, the opposite of dry, resulting from leftover sugars in the fermentation process.
To those who have written wine off their list of go-to alcoholic beverages, it may be time to give the grape-based drink another chance.
Many prefer wine’s lighter, more decadent variety to its robust counterpart because it’s more palatable.
Broaden your taste horizons with these types of sweet wines that may just make you change your mind about drinking wine!
First up, we’ve got the fan favorite: Moscato! Although commonly a white wine, red Moscatos are also available. There is even a perfect variety in between the two – the pink Moscato!

Is there a red wine that is sweet? Port is one of those rare red wines that is actually sweet. It’s considered a fortified wine, which means it’s higher in alcohol content compared to other wines.
Port also has its own sub-varieties: Ruby, White, and Tawny.

Originating from the French region of Sauternais, this particular sweet wine is classified as richly sweet. Its flavor stands out against its sweet wine friends, because the grapes used in the bottle are raisined. This gives the Sauternes fruity notes such as peaches, honey, and apricot.
