A lovely moscato bursting with sweet peach, apricot and honeysuckle notes. Moscato is quickly becoming one of the most popular white wines, and this is a great examples of why. It's tasty as an aperitif, or as an accompaniment to seafood and salads.

Moscato food pairings: spicy Asian cuisine, light desserts, fresh fruit and mild cheeses.

Reviews and Ratings

Sean O'Regan - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Pale yellow, expressive nose with peach, pear and ginger and citrus. Off dry, but the citrus zing keeps the sweetness from being too cloying. Ripe apricot, ginger and pink grapefruit all make an appearance that carry to a long finish on this medium bodied white. At $10 there is a lot of value to be had here. It's worth having several on hand to serve well chilled on a patio along with some hot chicken wings to allow the sweetness to temper the spice, or enjoy as a spritzer with club soda to cut the sweetness.
Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Packed with sweet stone fruit, ripe apple, and chamomile. A good Summer sipper if you're into Moscato, and the price is right. 87 Points.
Drink Wine and Giggle Gals rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

The Drink Wine and Giggle Gals like their men sweet but their wine extra dry, so it's no surprise that Barefoot Moscato is a bit too honeysuckle for our taste buds. We tried this wine at an art show and found it incongruously mainstream and ornate for the edgy minimalism of the event.

A sweet wine with delicious mouth-watering flavors of juicy peach and apricot. Hints of lemon and orange citrus compliment a crisp, refreshing finish.

Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Un vin doux avec des saveurs délicieuses et appétissantes de peches juteuses et d’abricot. Les touches de citron et d’oranges complctent le fini vif et rafraîchissant.

This deliciously sweet wine has flavors juicy ripe pears and lemon. A touch of CO2 lifts the sweet fruit aromas and flavors.
