One of life’s unexpected treats is memory de ja vue.
It is a strain of music, whiff of smell, snapshot of vision, or first bite of something grabbed out of thin air that transports you magically to a memory.
You are now sitting at opening day at the ballpark.
You are now eating that special anniversary dinner.
You are now kissing that sleeping baby.
Because memory is so closely associated with the senses of smell and taste, a good wine is often a trigger for memory de ja vue.
That bottle you opened with friends on vacation.
The glass you shared with family on a quiet evening at home.
That dinner party that went late into the night.
These times are so important. They are times that cause a smile. They are a hug from your memory.
It is why the Gallo Family Vineyards established National Moscato Day on May 9th. This year will be the second annual National Moscato Day and celebrating is as easy as uncorking a bottle of wine!
Moscato is the fastest growing wine variety in the US. It is a sweeter wine style that comes in three delicious types:
- White Moscato – A crisp refreshing light wine with flavors of peach, citrus and the sweetness of honey.
- Red Moscato – A medium-body lively wine with citrus, peach and berry. Best enjoyed chilled.
- Pink Moscato – A light-bodied wine with peach, orange and red berries. Pairs nicely with sweet desserts and cheeses.
What will be YOUR favorite?
For four generations, Gallo Family Vineyards has been growing great tasting wines at an affordable price. The Moscato wines are delicious on their own, great for pairing with cheese, dinner or desserts and make tasty punch cocktails. The Gallo Family Vineyard’s FB page is a great place to get all the latest Moscato information like great recipes…
The Punchful Spirit cocktail is really refreshing and would be the perfect compliment to a spring party. I liked the tangy grapefruity taste that wasn’t overly sweet.
It would also make a perfect punch to celebrate May 9th fun!
