Celebrate Moscato Day with Visit Lubbock

Grab an empty glass and pour yourself something sweet to celebrate Moscato Day on Friday, May 9.

Moscato wine was bred and born in Italy’s northwest region of Piedmont and has become uber-popular among new wine lovers for it’s sweet flavors that can be enjoyed with brunch, dessert or even on its own.

Well known for it’s sweet and perfume-like fragrance, Moscato usually has a lower alcohol content and a dazzling fruity palate profile. While I am not a wine enthusiast by any means, I can see why Gallo Family Vineyards created Moscato Day in 2012.

Luckily for us, Lubbock is home to five award-winning wineries. Many of the local wineries have jumped in on the Moscato game, so be sure to stop by their wineries to inquire about the sweeter side of wine and how you can pair it with your favorite foods.
