Moscato Wines

Wine Types

The Muscat Blanc A Petits Grains is the most commonly used grape from the Muscat type of grapes for making Moscato wines. It is a white, smaller type of grape which ripens early and is used to produce wines that are Light, Dry, Sweet, as well as Sparklings. It is said to be the oldest grape known, and like many grape varietals, originated in France, Spain, and Italy.


Typically- musky aromas, perfume-like fragrance, citrus tones, ripe peach, sweet honeyed flavour, rich fruit and floral notes are common in moscato wines. Sparkling Moscato wines tend to be more sweet. Moscato wines have some zestiness or spritz in their taste. Although white wine Moscato is not bubbly like sparkling wines, their frizzy texture produces tiny bubbles evident in a poured glass.
