11 of the Best Fruity, Sweet-Tasting Wines

Updated on October 19, 2017

Best Wine's for Those Who Love Their Wine Sweet and Fruity

I never thought I was much of a wine drinker except for maybe an occasional bottle of Arbor Mist. A true wine drinker would hear about this and write it off as a bottle of juice rather than wine. So I decided to do some experimenting to see what types of wine I would actually enjoy. Or if there was actually any at all? Maybe I was only an "alcoholic juice drinker."

I made a personal goal of trying as many sweet, fruity-tasting wines as possible without breaking my bank account. I was not about to drop a lot of cash on a bottle of wine only to find out that the sink drain would enjoy it more than I would. In my search for some yummy-tasting wines, I specifically looked for rose, blush, moscato, and dessert varieties, as they usually have a sweeter taste to them—which are more pleasant to the taste buds of an alcoholic juice drinker.

I began to create a list of wines and rate them on a scale from 1-10. 1 meaning that the wine was not very good at all. And 10 being so delicious I may consider a glass with breakfast. The list of wine that I have provided here are only of wines that I rated with a 7 or above.

Note: All of these wines are affordable. And have cost me less than $20 (Canadian) each.

List of Sweet, Fruity Wines and Their Ratings

  1. Graffigna Centenario Pinot White Wine. Rating 7. Not an overly sweet wine. But it has a nice "bite" to it. Hints of peaches and apricots.
  2. Gallo Family Vineyards, White Zinfandel. Rating 7.2. Tastes kind of like a flat, fruit drink. Not too dry and not too sweet.
  3. Relax, "Cool Red". Rating 7.5. This wine tastes best served very chilled. It is not too sweet and not too dry. But a nice mixture of both.
  4. Fresita. Rating 7.6. A nice sipping wine. With a dominant strawberry flavor.
  5. Boone's Sangria. Rating 7.7. Good fruit taste. Slightly sweet wine.
  6. Relax, "Blue". Rating 8. A little bit better than the red version.Slightly sweet and fruity. Not too sweet and not too dry.
  7. NVY Envy Passion Fruit. Rating 8. Very fruity sparkling wine. Passion fruit is easily pinpointed. Fruit infused so don't be alarmed by the fruit floaties they are supposed to be in there.
  8. Nova Tickled Pink Moscato. Rating 8. Slightly sparkling. Sweet but not too overpowering.
  9. Long Flat Red Moscato. Rating 8.5. This wine is for those of you who normally don't like wine. Similar to bubbly juice. But yet not too sugary. This is my go-to wine. I have yet to meet someone who does not like it.
  10. Emeri, Pink Moscato. Rating 8.5. Sparkling wine with a hint of fruit. Sweet but not too sweet.
  11. Wild Vine, Blackberry Merlot. Rating 9.2. Very juice like without being too sweet. Fruity and smooth.

What Kind of Fruity Wine Do You Like?

If you have tried any wine that is not on the list, and it was delicious, please let me know because I am interested in trying it and possibly adding it to the list.

When looking for a sweeter tasting wine it is best to stick to these types.

  • Port Wines: Coming from Portugal, these port wines are well known for their sweet taste. During the making of these wines brandy is usually added. This not only increases the sweetness of the wine but the alcohol content as well.
  • Moscato: Moscato, a.k.a. muscat, muscadel, or moscatel. Is an Italian wine. Often coming in peach and/or apricot flavors. this type of wine is usually enjoyed with desert and therefore, has a sweeter taste to it.
  • White Zinfandel; A light fruity, easy drinking wine with a light rose color. This type of wine is usually the first choice of those just getting started with drinking wine.
  • Riesling: Coming from Germany, the Riesling wine can either be very dry or very sweet. So be careful about which one you are choosing and be sure to read the label before purchasing.

Questions & Answers

  • I tend to have a sweet tooth, and I drink wine that I like, regardless of price, timing of a meal, screw top or cork, it doesn't matter to me. I agree with most of your list, but was wondering if you have tried a Lambrusco? I would encourage you to try it if you are an "alcoholic fruit juice" lover like me.

    I don't think I have tried a Lambrusco wine before. Thanks for the recommendation, I will for sure have to give it a try!

  • Is a red Moscato just as sweet as a white Moscato ?

    Both are made with the Muscat grape. And all three, white, pink and red are known to be the sweetest of the wines. The colour depends on the hue of the Muscat grape used. Therefore, I find the sweetness between the red and the white Moscato depends more on the brand than anything else.

      Thank you for your list of sweet and fruity wines. I've had different wines in the past but was never satisfied plus I am not very good at picking out wines. I enjoy a glass or two now and then of a sweet and fruity wine. Thanks again.

      Try Meier's made in Ohio. They are dessert wines. I've had them all! They range from medium to sweet.
