7 Sweet Wines For The Holidays

When I received the newsletter from Panther Distributing, I was very happy to see that they highlighted some sweet wines. The first four wines I found in the newsletter.

Since sweet wines are some of my favorite things, I decided to see if I could find a few more. Two wine bloggers helped me out with three additional suggestions for sweet wines that we all can enjoy over the holidays.

In addition to the names, I've included the aromas and flavors as described by the website. Apricots appear to be a much beloved fruit! Here's the list below.

7 Sweet Wines For The Holidays

Miles Mossop Kika
Aroma + Flavor: Dried apricot, peach, ginger, cinnamon, roasted almonds and pine nuts.

Capitello Dolcino Gew├╝rztraminer

Petaringa Moscato

Borgo Maragliano Moscato D'asti El Calie Mosto D'uva

Dezel of My Vine Spot suggested two Virginia wines. 

Aroma + Flavor: creamy peach, apricot and raspberry

Aroma + Flavor: candied fruit, orange peel, flowers, bright citrus fruits, toast, and a hint of spice.

Janelle of The Cork Chronicles, loves dessert wines for the holidays and suggested a cheaper alternative to Sauternes.

Good list! I feel like my parents and a lot of my friends really like sweet wines like Riesling and Gewurtz. Years ago, I used to like sweet wines, but now I like stuff that's not as sweet.

josephine - Thanks! I think you're in the majority. On average, when I go places, most people prefer wine on the dry side. But at least now, unlike years ago, there isn't such a horrible stigma attached to liking sweet wines.

The Gew├╝rztraminer is always a favorite. There was a great sparkling Moscato at Osteria Momma here in Los Angeles. Best Moscato ever! Thanks for the recommends!

the duo dishes - Glad you like the list! If I ever get to LA again, I'll have to remember Osteria Momma. : )
