Wine a Little or a Lot, It's Up to You

Thursday, October 10, 2013


Before J met me, he had never drank wine in his life. Beer and mixed drinks yes, but wine.. no! I'm pretty sure the first weekend we met I offered him a glass of Beviamo Moscato D'Asti and was a little leery about drinking it. But now he drinks just as much wine as I do!

One of our favorite things to do is try out new bottle of wine. Our absolute favorites are in the Beviamo brand we get from Sam's Club. But it's not always convenient to run out to Sam's to pick up a bottle of wine, though we have tried just about every wine in the Beviamo brand!

While I was down in South Carolina, we just went out to the shopette/gas station because it was easiest plus the wines are fairly decent priced with no tax. We actually found some pretty decent wines doing that. We always compare wines when we open them and so here is our list of wines that we had from bad to good. **As a side note we both enjoy white wines and are not huge fans of red wines but we did try some**


6. Red Velvet by Cupcake Vineyards

We wanted this bottle of wine to be really good because we wanted to find an easily accessible bottle of red wine that we liked. This one really was not it. It would have been really good with some dark chocolate but the taste of the wine alone was a little too dry and "alcohol-ey" tasting for me. I do have to say that it was a little better on the second day than when we first opened it.

5. Moscato by Yellowtail

This wine had a nice flavor and was best when very cold. It has a fruity flavor but was a little more dry than I like my moscato. This would not be my first pick if I were going to purchase a bottle of moscato, but this definitely wouldn't be a glass of wine I turned down!

4. Moscato by The Naked Grape

Alright, seriously who smiled when they read the name of this brand? I did. It was a good moscato with hints of orange in it. I liked it and would take this to cook outs or friends houses.  

3. Sweet Red by Tisdale

To be honest I chose this wine because I liked the label, it was around $5 and the description said it had a velvety soft finish. It actually turned out to be pretty good especially for the price. This was a pretty sweet red that wasn't too dry. I would pick up another bottle if we were having some spicy Chinese take out!

2. Moscato D'Asti by Cupcake Vineyards

To be honest this one could and probably did tie with the number 1 wine. The flavor in this wine was wonderful. It was very smooth and just heaven in a glass. It was a little more expensive than the other wines, but I would say well worth the extra few dollars!

Like the Cupcake Moscato D'Asti this was also heaven in a glass. It was smooth with wonderful light fruity flavor. It was about the same price as the Cupcake but again, well worth the money spent! 


I know I'm probably like the worst describer of wine flavor ever, but I just wanted to share J and my pass-time with you and what we found to be our favorite wines to be!

  1. The only one I haven't tried is Beviamo so will give it a shot. One of my faves is Oyster Bay sauv blanc if you ever see that :)

  4. Parker and I are trying to enjoy wine more. Right now, we rarely ever drink it, but we usually prefer reds when we do :)
