What Is Moscato

I know nothing about wine. My Niece likes moscato rose semi sweet red wine, what is a good brand in this type of wine? Thanks, Jerry
Answer From Expert Roger Bohmrich MW

Your niece is certainly not alone as there are many people who enjoy this type of wine, which is usually called "pink" Moscato. The good news is that there are many options, and they are all very affordable. You might look for any of the following brands, which tend to be widely available: Sutter Home, Barefoot, Yellow Tail, or Gallo Family Vineyards. Some are available as sparkling wines as well as "still" (no bubbles). You'll also find many other labels once you begin exploring. Why not buy your niece three different ones so she can pick her own favorite?
