Fiesta Winery – Texas Well Water Wine – ★★☆

Browsing the wine selection at my grocery store, I started looking at the Fiesta wines and I couldn’t make up my mind on which one I wanted to try first! Their winery is 40 miles from where I live or so, which isn’t that far and I’m thinking I need to take a nice little trip out there one day! With that being said, this one wasn’t my favorite.

This wine is called well water wine and it tasted like well water wine. Haha, go figure! Literally tasted like water from a well followed by an aftertaste. I was feeling adventurous when I picked this one and I wasn’t all that surprised at what I got! I want to go to the winery to try out all the other ones, hopefully, because I’m always down to save a buck in the long run! I’ll still probably pick up another one before I head out there though, because I have no self control. This one was surely interesting, just not something I’d get again.

Belle Bollé – Moscato and Strawberry – ★★

The Bella Bollé Bella Rosso was phenomenal and the site of this one made my mouth water! Have you ever tried the Seagram’s Escapes in Strawberry Daiquiri?? That is one of my favorites of all time! For some reason, I mean for many reasons, I hyped this up for myself and while I was expecting a nice, sweet moscato, I was left with a wine that was sweet for second and then followed by a not-so-pleasant aftertaste which was then followed by another not-so-pleasant aftertaste.

I filled up a glass and forced myself to drink it, hoping it would grow on me and my second glass was worse. As more time went on and the more I tried it, the more unpleasant it became and I don’t understand why! Looking at the bottle again now, it looks like it would be so yummy, but be aware, that it was something…else.

I gave it two stars because it wasn’t absolutely disgusting, but it also wasn’t good. I don’t know what happen, but I do know I will not be purchasing again.

 

 

 

Llano – Blush – ★

So, this one is actually one of the first wines I’ve bought in a while that I didn’t like. I was actually very hopeful for this one but it turned out to be something that reminded me of White Zinfandel and for some reason I HATE White Zinfandel! It was just incredibly bitter and there were so many different tastes going on.

In between pouring it out, I kept taking sips because maybe it would grow on me. Every sip I took, I felt like it was getting worse and I couldn’t do it. It’s an incredibly cute wine, and maybe in the future I’ll try it again! But as for now, it’s a no go.

I love love love this picture I took though!

Verdi Spumante – Rasberry Sparkletini – ★★★★

This one was recommended to me by a fellow wine lover on instagram! She said I’d love it and I absolutely did! It definitely reminded me of Stella Rosa Berry which was one of my old time faves!

This one is definitely fruity and was definitely up my alley. Super light and refreshing and there definitely wasn’t enough in the bottle. This is one of those wines that would be good for someone who wants to try a wine but wants to start with something sweet. I will be definitely be buying another bottle of this gold!

Stella Rossa – Stella Pink – ★★★★★+

Okay, so this one is my favorite Stella Rosa. I’ve tried Stella Rosso, Black, Berry, Peach, and the Moscato D’asti. My first bottle had sat in my fridge for a while because I was afraid it wasn’t going to be good, but I was so angry when I opened it and tried it because I fell in love so quickly! Sella Pink is a semi-sweet and sparkling wine and is easily one of my favorites.

Berry was my favorite for a while and I would go to the neighbor city just to get it! I’m not sure what happen, but I can no longer drink it! Something about it was just super heavy and I just no longer have a taste for it. I’ve been drinking this one for a while and I’m still in love. The taste is light and refreshing and of course it’s pretty sweet.

I’ve had two bottles of this in the past and I’ve ended up sharing both bottles. When I open this one it’ll be all mine! I went to their site for the first time recently and I thought I tried them all, but there are most to taste which is exciting!

Vino Dei Fratelli – Moscato D’asti – ★★★★★+

I mentioned a little bit ago that Bartenura was my go to wine and it’s been my baby for a while now. The last time I had it though, I don’t know what it was, but I just wasn’t feeling it. So there is one more lonely bottle in my fridge and I don’t know when I’ll touch it!

Meanwhile, I had seen this one for a good while before I finally picked it up. I first tried it around Christmas time and I really liked it! I started thinking about it and so I tried it again recently and I’m pretty freaking obsessed. It’s very, very crisp and refreshing and it’s becoming my “go to wine”. This one isn’t real fruity and doesn’t go to my head like some of the other wines I’ve tried. It’s a relaxer and that’s what I like about it!

I usually manage to finish a bottle once it’s opened because I afraid a wine will go flat. I can put this wine back in the fridge and have a second glass the next day or the day after and i feel like it tastes even better. (I’m hoping the next one I find is as good as this one! Hopefully better!)

Bartenura – Moscato – ★★★★★

Sooooo. This wine is like my go to. This wine has been my baby since I started drinking wine. It’s sweet and doesn’t have an after taste and just about tastes like juice with a little kick (just like I like it)! I’ve probably had more bottles of this wine than anything else, but that’s becuase it’s fail proof and will probably always be a favorite.

I’ve actually recently found a different wine by Bartenura but I have never seen anything like it and I’m almost afraid to try it becuase it will either be gross or be very good and I won’t be able to find another bottle like it (but that’s another story!)
