Our delicate Moscato from the Valencia region of Spain is lightly effervescent, light in alcohol (11%), lightly sweet, and has aromas of rose petal and peach. It's a fantastic aperitif and a beautiful way to begin any celebration, which brings me to another point. You can drink Besitos Moscato in whatever sort of glass suits your fancy, but personally, I like to drink it out of a champagne flute. The little bubbles can really do their thing, and its a good reminder to celebrate one's blessings everyday. Home is where the ♥ is. We are honored to be a part of your table.

This mountainous country possesses more vineyard land than any other country on earth, and ranks third in wine production after France and Italy. Spain is best known for its red Riojas and its Sherries, however other wines and regions are quickly gaining notoriety. Like France, Spain divides wine into categories; table wine at the bottom level and quality wine at the top, with a large emphasis on geographical origin. VdM (Vino de Mesa) is a basic table wine. VC (Vino Comarcal) wines are a level up. VdlT (Vino de la Tierra) refers to one of the country’s 25 distinct regions, and each wine possesses a local character. At the top level, only about fifty wines are considered DO (Denominacion de Origen). These wines come from the best-known regions and are the equivalent of France’s Appellation Contrôlée. DOC (Denominacion de Origen Calificada) is reserved for wines that adhere to the most stringent regulations. So far, Rioja is the only wine to gain the Calificada classification.
