The wines are listed in a simple sequence starting with those that are sweeter and very mild in taste, progressing to the wines that are drier and stronger in taste. You can print this list and take it into your local retailer or, if you live where this is legal, find the wine and order it online. REMEMBER - do NOT let anyone try to sway you against a sweet wine - this is about YOUR enjoyment! If you want to explore dry wines, start with the DELICATE category.
