What are some quality sweet wines for someone new to wines? I have plenty of experience with beers but not so much about wines.

I have been a proponent of not drinking the alcohol-y stuff, but I want to change that.
Recently, I had a chance to taste some wines, but they were either too dry or were quite bitter. I know from reading James Bond novels about some of the quality wines that experts prefer, but I probably can't afford them.
To ease my transition, I am looking for some sweeter wines that have lesser % of alcohol (for driving back after a glass of wine and not getting a DUI!).
By the way, is there a beast called "sweet champagne"? I would love to drink champagne once in a while, but not sure how it would be to someone who is new to it.
