Our range of Moscato wine online
Moscato is a sweet white variety of vino, which is made from grapes that are usually dried to concentrate their sugars. It can either be lightly or heavily sweetened, so it typically pairs well with most desserts.
Additionally, it’s one of the most popular choices in the world, as it appeals to a wide range of palettes, ages and tastes. In the past few years, it’s become a favourite amongst crowds from all over the globe. Since it’s not considered ‘hard’, it’s easy to drink and pairs well with just about anything.
What are the origins of this drop?
The origins of this beautifully sweet drop can be traced back to ancient Rome, when this variety of vino was sold under the Italian name of ‘Moscato Giallo.’ The Romans would store the drink in clay jars to preserve it for years on end, then use it for festivals and celebrations. These days, it’s still enjoyed in gatherings, celebrations and good company.
If you ask us how to enjoy it best, we recommend chilling it in advance so it makes for the perfect accompaniment to a summer’s day or in hot weather. It also goes perfectly with seafood and lighter meals.
Find the perfect accompaniment for your next meal
This dessert vino is delicately sweet – so it pairs well with cheesecake, tiramisu and everything in between. Meanwhile, its sweetness can also be used to compliment fruits, particularly strawberries, citrus, melons and berries. However, it doesn’t pair as well with spicy meals, as its taste is lost to stronger flavours.
