NATIONAL MOSCATO DAY – May 9th 2016


 

National Moscato Day May 9

NATIONAL MOSCATO DAY

On May 9 raise your glass and toast National Moscato Day. Moscato, or Muscat in Italian, is one of the oldest known variety of grapes grown in the world.

The grape can be white to almost black and the flavor from sweet to dry. Because of this, it is quite versatile and is used to make everything from sparkling and dessert wines to dry and floral wines. Where one Moscato may pair well with a steak, another will go well with fresh fruit and a sharp cheese plate.

In February 2012, it was reported that Moscato wine became the third most popular white wine consumed within the United States.

HOW TO OBSERVE

Prepare a nice plate of fresh cheeses, grab a bottle of your favorite Moscato, and pour a glass to enjoy the day. Use #MoscatoDay and #NationalMoscatoDay to share on social media.

HISTORY

National Moscato Day was created in 2012 by the Gallo Family Vineyards.  The Gallo Family Vineyards is a family-owned business that has been in operation since 1933.  For more information on National Moscato Day visit Moscato Day.
