Best Moscato Wine Instead of Champagne

Moscato WineWho says you have to have champagne with Chocolate covered strawberries? Our guest from St Armant, Louisiana preferred Moscato wine instead! The look on her face when she saw what her husband had done for her was priceless. There are a lot of wonderful lasting memories happening for many people here at the Cajun Mansion.

Mirassou Winery puts out an awesome Moscato sweetish desert type wine for people who prefer a crisp, refreshing wine with fruit aromas of orange blossoms, peaches, pineapples and citrus. These bright and fruit-forward aromas extend to the palate through luscious flavors of sweet tropical fruit, mandarin oranges and honey.

Moscato is a white wine that has recently exploded onto the scene. A wine from Italy, Moscato has become incredibly popular for drinking on its own or even as an aperitif because it’s sweet, low in alcohol and incredibly easy to drink. Historically known as a dessert wine, Moscato has a slight fizz and flavors of nectarine, peach and orange that are very pleasing to your taste buds.
