Discover Moscato Wines
Moscato, or Muscat as it's known outside of Italy, is the name of one of the world's oldest and most common grape families (it's also known as Moscatel in Spain and Portugal). Moscato grapes, which are said to have originated in the Middle East, have been employed in winemaking since the days of the ancient Greeks.
Moscato flourishes in a typical Mediterranean environment and likes warm temperatures in general. Italy, France, Spain, and Rutherglen, Australia, provide the finest examples. A lengthy history, on the other hand, carries with it a large number of synonyms, mutations, and crosses.
There is no such thing as a ""genuine"" Moscato; rather, there are a plethora of versions, each with its own regional flavor and personality. Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains (Moscato Bianco in Italy) is the Muscat family's oldest and most valuable member. It's cultivated in both the Old and New Worlds, and it's used to make a variety of wines as varied as its synonyms.
Moscato is produced in greater quantities in Italy than in any other nation, mostly in the form of Moscato d'Asti, which is created from Moscato Bianco. The best wines from the French appellations Muscat de Beaumes de Venise, Muscat de Lunel, and Clairette de Die are produced from Muscat Blanc à Petit Grains. The Wachau area of Austria produces less well-known, but frequently outstanding, specimens.
