Sutter Home Moscato
|Region||California, United States|
|Brand||Sutter Home Family Vineyards|
Chile’s growing climate is perfect for growing top-notch Moscato. The days are sunny, dry and warm and the Andes mountains create ample water from snow melt. Many valleys provide ideal conditions for grape growing and the resulting Moscato is classic, crisp and delicious.
Sutter Home has been producing this classic, fragrant, sweet wine for over 50 years—in fact, Moscato was the very first wine we bottled. To craft this lovely wine, our winemakers cap and drain the juice to increase the varietal intensity, and forego malolactic fermentation to maintain the wine’s refreshing acidity. To preserve its fresh, fragrant aromas and flavors, our Moscato is cold-fermented and aged entirely in stainless steel tanks.
T.A.: 0.72 g/100ml

Sutter Home Moscato is sweet and creamy—an especially delightful treat when shared with your sweetie. Beautiful scents of white peaches, rose petals and exotic lichee fruit waft from the glass, leading to luscious peach and honeydew melon flavors. The sweet flavors are perfectly balanced by crisp acidity, and a refreshing finish.
When the Trinchero family bought the Sutter Home Winery in 1948, they had a vision, a passion, and apparently, an insight into consumer tastes. In the early 1970s, Sutter Home started a trend when the company created White Zinfandel, introducing a new, sweeter flavor profile. They changed the way Americans enjoyed wine by offering them high-quality varietals at an affordable price. By the 1980s and 1990s, Sutter Home became a household name and the second largest independent family-run winery in the United States.
But that was just the beginning. Sutter Home began producing Moscato long before it was “cool,” continuously staying one taste bud ahead of the consumer with new varietals such as Bubbly Pink Moscato and Red Moscato. And when “green” was just a color, Sutter Home introduced the wildly popular 187s in environmentally friendly, conveniently sized PET bottles.

Sutter Home continued to reach beyond the bottle by launching one of the first breast cancer awareness programs in 2001. Through the Sutter Home for Hope® program, the company has raised nearly $1 million dollars toward breast cancer awareness and research. Then in 1990, the Build a Better Burger® recipe contest was born, demystifying the wine experience by pairing America’s favorite everyday meal with its favorite wine brand—Sutter Home. And with an exciting $25,000 grand prize, it continues to bring together burger and wine enthusiasts every year.
With a fresh new label, Sutter Home continues to reflect the evolution of the brand and its consumers. With over 20 different varietals to choose from in the Sutter Home portfolio, there’s a wine to suit every mood and every palate. We can’t wait to taste what’s next.
