Red wine is a great option for both beginners and non-wine drinkers, with Pinot Noir being one of the best wines at a wine bar. It is light-bodied and fruity notes with a range of flavors from fresh red fruit, cherries, and cranberries to darker, more complicated flavors like earth, spice, and anise. Other great options for that starting to include Beaujolais, a Zinfandel with a rich, jammy taste, or a fruit-forward Merlot.

3. Rosé Wines

Roseacute wines are entry-level wines with a fruity, semi-sweet flavor. They come from a variety of grape varieties and tend to be crisp and refreshing with the aromas of fresh red fruits, flowers, and spices. They are best served chilled and work well with a variety of foods, from salads and fish to light meat options.

They are also a great option for party drinks due to their light and fruity flavor and lower alcohol content. As a beginner, it is important to start with calm wines like Roseacute, but if you want to challenge yourself, you may also try other rose varieties like Rosato, Rosso, and Rosso Frizzante.
