• I love that label! Put a smile on my face. 🙂

    • It is a fun label and I love how they achieved too. 🙂

    I will have to try this brand for the Sweet Red. I have tried their (regular?) moscato but not the kind you tried. I like both as a “when the kids go to bed” glass of wine to relax with.

    • Cool! They are 17 different Barefoot Wines. Some are sweeter then other Have fun with it. Let me know what you tried and how you liked it. 🙂

    Thanks for this post. I had no idea that Barefoot was from Modesto. I will have to try this one. Would you suggest using this brand for Sangria? Also you should review Delecato Winery in Manteca.

    • The red sweet wine is pretty darn sweet so if you used in a Sangria you would need any sugar. It may be interesting to give it a try. I have review a Delicato wine in the past but they have a number of varietals and labels that would be fun to check out. It might be worth a winery visit to see, don’t you think? 🙂

    Yes Wine Please!! The bubbley is my favorite! My hubby and I started drinking it after we were married because it’s like champagne! I had no idea it was started in a garage! Interesting!

    • I always love to read the history of some wines, they are just too fun. Isn’t the label story the coolest?

  • A surprisingly decent wine considering it gets full frontal attention at Wal-Mart’s aisles! Boujailais is the only red that I’ve ever tried chilled. Reminds me of a time that I and two friends all showed up to our monthly writer’s dinner with the same type of wine. Oh what fun wine can add to a meal 🙂

    • Yes, they are. They have 17 different varietals so you pretty much find something for any taste. 🙂

    Susan, I always enjoy a new and fresh perspective on your blogs, i.e. life, business, food and wines. That being said, when it came to the Barefoot brand of Sweet Red I anticipated something TOTALLY different from my experience. (I have enjoyed Barefoot’s brand of Cabernet, Pinot Noir), but this was not a pleasant journey for me and my friends. Sweet was definitely a nice expression of its properties as a wine. I would also stay away from the Rex Goliath Range Free Red, it falls in the same category. I try to go with, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all”, so I hope this doesn’t come across as such. All I can recommend is if you’re looking for a full-bodied wine that holds up its end of the bargain in a “plato fuerte”, substantial meal…this would not be a good choice. As you had said before, perhaps this would be better served in a conglomeration such as a Sangria where the ingredients/spices could be dialed in. Oh, not a big fan of Moscato either, but different strokes, different different folks. Se la vie!

    • The beauty of wine is there is always something for everyone. Although I prefer a more full bodied wine I appreciate that other’s do not. I find my palate is in the medium bold range when it comes to my wine preference, not to bold and not to sweet. What I love about the wine and the wine industry are their histories and their commitment to making the best product possible for their audience… Cheers and “vive la différence”

    Not a fan but I do love this and your wine reviews.

    • I understand every type of wine has it’s own following, but I am glad you enjoy reading my wine posts

    I am def a fan of more sweet wines. I hate bitter ones. I want to find a wine I actually like since our new house will have a built in wine rack in the kitchen

    • Then you will definitely like the Red Sweet Wine & Moscato Spumante by Barefoot Wines. When you give it a try, let me know what you think. 🙂
