Chocolate Moscato Fudge #MoscatoDay

Today is National Moscato Day! That means it’s time to celebrate this sweet, flavorful wine. I think Chocolate Moscato Fudge is in order!

Delicious Moscato pairs well with spicy foods. The subtle sweetness adds balance to  Mexican-inspired and Chinese-inspired dishes that feature a bit of heat.
This wine also pairs well with desserts. Its pretty good in desserts too!

Unfamiliar with Moscato? I found that Gallo Family Vineyards, a leading producer of Moscato can help.

White: 

White Moscato is a light and refreshing sweet white. You can taste peach, honey and ripe citrus in each sip. Serve Moscato to nicely balance spicy Asian or Mexican dishes. This wine goes excellent with desserts.

Pink: 
Pink Moscato has the best of both Moscato worlds: delicate and light like White Moscato with hints of red berries like their red. Try substituting it for your go to pink for a nice surprize!
Red: 
Red Moscato found a way to showcase citrus, peach and red berry in one wine. I especially love Red Moscato with chocolate. Chill this wine to bring out the delicate flavor profile for yourself! Like all Moscatos, it pairs well with spicy foods. It also makes a great wine for wine and cheese parties!

    Can I make this with white chocolate instead? Do you think that would turn out?
