Drinking and Pairing Muscat with FoodMuscat is produced in a range of styles, from the dry Muscats of Alsace to the sweet liqueur styles of Greece and southern France. There are hundreds of varieties of Muscat grown in nearly every wine-producing region throughout the world. Dry Muscat wines are often described as musky and grapey, very floral, and with medium acidity. Muscat de Beaumes-de-Venise from the southern Rhône and Muscatel de Setúbal from Portugal are two of the best known sweet wines made from the Muscat grape. In Piedmont, Italy, Moscato d'Asti is a delicious sparkling sweet version of the Muscat grape.
Dry Alsatian Muscats tend to be light and easy to drink and make for an excellent apéritif, while the sweeter styles work well with desserts containing fresh or dried fruits.
