Typical Price:



This is a rather successful Californian take on a Muscat wine: still sweet but now a semi-dry as the higher alcohol content (9% versus the typical 5.5% in an Italian Moscatello) makes this wine feel distinctly more grown-up.   There is not however any natural spritz, although certain reviewers have reported a hint of it.

Where this wine really wins out is on value for money, coming in at around £7.  So if you enjoy some sweetness balanced with a certain acidity in the finish, and can get it well chilled, then this is an attractive wine, especially to eat with spicey Asian foods or as a dessert wine.  And in certain circles you’ll even look cool drinking it.  Rappers Kanye, Jay-Z, Lil’Kim and Drake and many others have all written about it, the latter singing:

“It’s a celebration

Clap clap bravo

Lobster and shrimp

And a glass of Moscato”

And that’s a good serving suggestion too.  Or, try our Moscato Mule cocktail for something even more exciting:

My Muscato Mule (5% ABV) is made from :

  • 100ml Moscato
  • 5ml Bottle Green’s Ginger and Lemongrass Cordial syrup
  • 50ml cold green tea
  • Squeeze of ¼ of a lime

  • Loads of ice

Makers Notes

Barefoot Moscato is a sweet wine with hints of delicious mouth-watering juicy peach and apricot. Notes of lemon and orange citrus complement a crisp and fruity finish. Perfect with spicy Asian cuisine, light desserts, fresh fruits, and mild cheeses.
