Moscato, a white grape variety hailing from Italy's Piedmont region, is the backbone of some of the world's most beloved sweet and aromatic wines. Known for its low alcohol content, lively effervescence, and fruit-forward flavors, Moscato has gained popularity as an approachable, easy-drinking wine. While the Moscato grape is most commonly associated with Moscato d'Asti and Asti Spumante wines, it is also used to produce still, semi-sparkling, and dessert wines in various regions across the globe.

What does it pair with?

Moscato's sweetness and lively character make it an excellent partner for a range of dishes. The wine's fruit-forward flavors complement light, fruity desserts, such as fruit tarts, sorbet, or pavlova. Moscato also pairs well with spicy foods, like Thai or Indian cuisine, as its sweetness helps to tame the heat. For a simple yet satisfying pairing, try Moscato with a selection of soft cheeses, such as Camembert, Brie, or blue cheese.
