Sweet dessert wine is produced with extra sweet wine grapes. In order to make them sweet, the fermentation is stopped before the yeast turns all the natural grape sugar into alcohol. I'm the kind of girl who would much rather sit with a tasty glass of wine instead of indulging in a piece of pie any day. In this post, I'll share my favorites.
While there are hundreds of different types of dessert wines available on the market, most fall into 5 main styles. Sparkling, Light & Sweet, Rich & Sweet, Sweet Red and Fortified. The two bottles shown above are delicious AND inexpensive!
With these wines, excellence is delivered in small doses—in stark contrast to the appetite of today, where the crowd demands that excess must come in excessive amounts. Now, the bottles shown above will be a bit more expensive but you must try it at least once. Trust me. You'll thank me later.
