Camelot Cellars is the first winery in Central Ohio to produce the vino variety made popular by such lyrical poetry as “Imma sip Moscato and you gonna lose them pants” and “Let get drunk off this Moscato, do it like there’s no tomorrow.”
“Moscato is extremely popular today,” said Camelot owner Janine Aquino. “About one out of every three customers that walk into Camelot ask for a Moscato.”
Moscato is a sweet white wine created from the Muscat variety of grapes. Its light sweetness makes it very easy to sip on, even for people who aren’t big wine drinkers. Camelot’s Moscato was created at the Short North winery using imported Chilean Muscat juice.
The Moscato release party will take place Tuesday, June 26 from 6-9pm. The Ohio Grape Industries Grape Van will be on-site to hand out swag, coupons and information about the Ohio Wine Industry. June is, after all, Ohio Wine Month.
