About This Wine

Finding wines that pair well with spicy food can be a real challenge.

But as America becomes more of a melting pot every year — and as American palates become accustomed to an ever growing number of ethnic cuisines — exotic spices are encountered more often. Dry, tannic wines such as Cabernet Sauvignon simply can’t stand up to many of those flavors.

What to do? Seek out wines that possess a touch of sweetness. At many Thai restaurants, for instance, it’s becoming more common to see wine lists heavy on white varieties that are made in an off-dry (i.e., slightly sweet) style — varieties such as Riesling and Gewurztraminer.

Another option is Moscato, such as the 2011 bottling from Viaggiatore. Crafted from grapes grown on the island of Sicily — where the Mediterranean climate accommodates full ripening of the grapes and, thus, full sugar development — the wine is fresh, sweet and the perfect companion for spicy fare.

    I do not care much for the sweeter whites. However, I found this Moscato to be quite refreshing and lite. Lively and crisp.

    What a wonderful surprise when I opened this wine. I love the bright, fruit flavor and the hint of sweetness. I would never have suspected such a pleasant taste. And I do not normally enjoy sweet wine, but this one is perfect!! Well done staff.

    Wayyyyyy too sweet, like alcoholic sprite. Not much flavor otherwise. Leaves glasses sticky when dry, it's so sweet.
