Moscato Wines and Blends


Dessert wines – as you might expect – are delicious with dessert or in place of dessert. Our current favorite is Moscato, but there are a variety of incredible wines to choose from. Typically made by stopping the fermentation process before the yeast turns the natural grape sugar into alcohol, dessert wines are lower in alcohol content and sugar. Dessert wines fall into five primary categories: Fortified Wine, Sweet Red Wine, Richly Sweet Dessert Wine, Lightly Sweet Dessert Wine, and Sparkling Dessert Wine.

Fortified Wine Sweet Red Wine Richly Sweet Dessert Wine Lightly Sweet Dessert Wine Sparkling Dessert Wine
Port Lambrusco Late Harvest Gewürztraminer Demi–Sec (includes Champagne and Moscato)
Sherry Brachetto d'Acqui Noble Rot – Sauternes, Barsac, Cadillac, Monbazillac, Tokaji, Auslese, Beerenauslese, Trockenbeerenauslese, Riesling Riesling Amabile
Madeira Schiava Straw Mat– Italian Vin Santo, Italian Passito, Greek Straw Wines, German Strohwein/Austrian Schilfwein, French Vin de Paille Müller–Thurgau Doux
