Pink Moscato is typically a blend of white Moscato wine made from Muscat Blanc grapes and a touch of red wine. It can also be made by blending Muscat Blanc grapes with Black Muscat grapes.

Moscato wine is a light, semi-sparkling wine characterized by its sweetness. It often has fruity notes such as peaches, apples or pears. This type of wine is best when served chilled. It pairs especially well with desserts such as fruit cobblers or pies. It can also be served with mild cheeses and fresh fruit. As a dinner option, it complements freshwater fish or ocean shellfish such as oysters, shrimp and clams.
