We have some great wine pairing suggestions to celebrate National Moscato Day! Here are some delicious Moscato wines from around the world and tasty dessert pairings to match. Don’t have a sweet tooth? That’s okay – pair Moscato with cheeses like Camembert or Pecorino Romano for a balance of sweet and salty.

 

Innocent Bystander Moscato (Yarra Valley, Australia)

A sweeter style Rosé Moscato at a low alcohol of 5.5%. Subtle red berry characteristics.

pair with

Lots of flavour from berries and stone fruit are a great summer snack.

Bota Box Moscato (California)

Yes, it’s boxed wine. Don’t be fooled, it’s delicious and fruity and conveniently portable. Notes of honeysuckle and melon and at 11.5% it’s not too sweet.

pair with

Chocolate Mousse

Use bittersweet chocolate to pair best with this Moscato. Not too sweet or rich, which means it’s practically guilt-free.
