For the third year in a row, Moscato remains the fastest growing wine varietal in the United States. Celebrate Moscato day with Gallo Family Vineyards for the second annual National Moscato Day on May 9th. For four generations, Gallo Family Vineyards has been committed to providing great tasting wines at an affordable price. Here are 3 wines to check out this summer:
1. Moscato exhibits flavors of peach, honey and ripe citrus to round out the light-bodied style. It pairs well with spicy dishes, and the peach works well served for many soft and hard cheeses.
2. Red Moscato has lively flavors of sweet citrus and peach, with a red berry finish. The wine has medium-body, and it’s best enjoyed chilled. Pair with with light cheeses, spicy cuisines or rich chocolate desserts.
3. Pink Moscato is full of fresh citrus and peach along, with hints of red berries and orange. Pair with sweeter desserts or cheeses such as manchego.
