The difference between a very good dinner and a really great one can hinge on a small glass. This author feels that muscat wines shouldn’t always wait until dinner—they are appropriate as aperitifs or as midafternoon refreshers. Robert Feinn shares what makes sweet wines sweet and how to get two great wines from one grape. He details Muscat de Beaumes de Venise and Moscato d’Asti – their composition, character, and foods that pair well with them.
