It’s National Moscato Week!
That’s right, we as a nation celebrate wines now… Just go with it! Moscato (aka Muscat) is the #1 top trending wine in the US.Take that Chardonnay… you too, Sauvignon Blanc.This little grape packs a punch. It is arguably the most aromatic white wine, and one of the most versatile wines out there – ranging from crisp and dry, to delicately sweet sparkling, to full-on dessert wine. It was also one of the first grapes used to make wine and is grown all over the world.
