You MUST Celebrate Moscato Day

There’s something subtly romantic and brightly flavorful about a chilled glass of Moscato. Thankfully, we get a whole day dedicated to this incredible wine variety every year on May 9th. We have a delightful Moscato wine at our Lake of the Ozarks winey that you absolutely have to try - but in the meantime, here are a few interesting things to know about Muscat wines, where they come from, how they’re made, what you should pair them with and more!

Seven Springs Muscato Sparkling

Our Muscat isn’t your typical glass of wine. We’ve taken an average wine and made it amazing by bringing out the brilliant, light straw color and enhancing the tropical fruit & flowery flavors that are so well loved in a glass of Muscato. Ours is light bodied but has that wonderful fruit forward sparkling finish. It’s a wonderful glass of wine to sit down and enjoy a warm spring or summer evening and perfect when you want to toast to a wonderful event.

A Few Facts About Muscato Wine

  • Moscato wine comes from the Muscat grape.
  • Moscato wine is generally sweeter than other wines
  • Muscat grapes have become popular in other parts of the world, such as Chile!
  • Moscato wines have a high concentration of flavonoid (similar to red), which means that it’s considered a healthy wine! It’s high in antioxidants, too!
  • The Muscat grape is the only fine wine grape that can double as a table grape!

What Should You Pair with Our Muscato Sparkling

If you aren’t sure what would pair well with our Moscato Sparkling wine, we have a few suggestions! Of course, if you really want to get the scoop, come check out our menu. We have a wine pairing with each meal selection.

  • Brie-style cheeses or mascarpone cheese with a sweet bread.
  • Buttery cream sauce or even buttered popcorn!
  • Shrimp, shellfish, smoked salmon, caviar, fried calamari, and oysters.
  • Salami, veggies, stuffed mushrooms, egg dishes, foie gras.
  • Fruit-based desserts like crepes, tarts, or a buttery, honeyed dessert.
  • Shortbread cookies also pair well.
  • Our Spicy Shrimp & Crab Bisque (An award winner for Best of the Lake!)
  • Our Seared Ahi Tuna Firecracker Lollipops
  • Our Grilled Chicken Apple & Cheddar Grilled Panini

Basically, you can pair it with the items you would usually pair with a white wine or a champagne!

The Best Wine at the Lake of the Ozarks

Sure, we may be biased, but we are certain that you will enjoy a glass of Moscato sparkling when you come out to our Lake of the Ozarks winery. The view alone is worth the drive out, but our Missouri wine is absolutely delectable. If you haven't been out here, come out on Wednesday, May 9th for Moscato Day! Or take a look at our Facebook page to learn more about the great events at the Lake of the Ozarks that are coming up.
