Moscato Wine

Chris WilliamsMoscato wine sales continue to rise as the young, hip wine enthusiasts and those exploring the sweat wine scene continue to rave about this delicious semi-sweet, low alcohol, lightly fizzy white wine. I’ve tried numerous Moscatos and gathered some of the best Moscato brands on the market to review based on what I found to be the best flavor profiles and food pairings.

 

Interesting Note on Moscato: In February of 2012, Muscato wine became the third most popular white wine consumed within the United States.
