Before you sip, how- to know if it’s sweet
If sweet wine is where you draw the line, here’s how to avoid sugary sips.
1. The Wine List- If it is listed under dessert wine, it’s sweet. The rule of thumb when drinking wine with dessert is that the wine should be as sweet as or sweeter than your dessert. So restauranteurs and chefs place the sweetest sips here, including Ports, Sherry (except Fino which is a dry Sherry and shouldn’t technically be under dessert wine anyway), and Sauternes.
