Thanks so much to everyone for your help and quick replies. I'm sort of leaning towards the Bartenura Moscato d'Asti myself, I'm about 98% sure that was it. My friend is going to the wine store where she purchased the bottle, to see if A:there is any more, and if not B:if anyone there remembers it.
Question: Has anyone ever had a wine recommended to them, only to find that it was horrible?? I ask this because on a recent family trip to the Outer Banks of NC, (on Ocracoke island to be exact), we were dining at a wonderful quaint bistro, and I was having some trouble deciding on wine. The wine list had a few things recognizable, and a few things that were "new" to me, and I really wanted to try something new. I was thinking of having a curried vegetable dish, and really wanted a crisp white, so I let the waitress make a recommendation. Boy was that a mistake. I think it was some kind of Pinot Gri. It was HEAVY and BOLD to say the least.
Another question: When do you think is "too young" for a person to start learning about wines, wine history and so forth (including tasting and on occasion having a glass with certain foods). I ask this, because my daughter who is 12, has an interest in wine now, and like her mother, loves to taste and try them out with different foods and such. I think it's perfectly acceptable, and I'm actually happy that she's learning. I will say also that this is not something we do very often, she may have a sip or two about 3 to 5 times a year, and only has a full glass with a meal about once a year.
Sorry about the above novella, I'm just happy that I've found a group that enjoys discussing these things!!! (FINALLY LOL).
Take care everyone,
