Two quick red wine related questions..
*We are staying in Mestre & we'll be walking around Venice for four days pre-cruise. I'd like to buy a couple (at least) of bottles of red wine to take onboard. I would like to find a red moscato, a sparkling red, or a sweet red. Will it be easy to find a wine store or a place selling these types of red wines in Mestre or Venice??
*When ordering at a casual restaurant in Venice... and opting to go for a house red... would this be something I would enjoy when looking at my normal tastes (above - red moscato, sparking red, sweet red) ??? If you like a house wine... is it possible to order a bottle to go?? Is it appropriate (or not) to ask for a taste prior to ordering a carafe of house red??
Thanks for any answers. I'm not picky about wines (believe it or not) and I'm not a wine snob by any means but the dry red wines are not for me.
