May White Wine of the Month
The Muscat of Alexandria grape is considered an ancient vine, one of the oldest genetically unmodified grape vines still in existence. As its name suggests, it originated around the great city of Alexandria, at the western edge of the Nile Delta in Egypt. Today, this grape is widely used in European sweet wine and grape spirits in Chile (South America). Enjoy our refreshing off-dry, new world-style Muscat of Alexandria!
