@MeStephieP:  Have you considered Moscato d’Asti? It is lightly carbonated and should be served in champagne flutes. You would get the best of both worlds.

Moscato d’Asti is similar to Moscato in sweetness, although a little lighter and fresher. It is also very affordable.

@MeStephieP:  i love moscato! but another alternative may by Verdi Spumante. its a sparkling sweet beverage and can be served in a champagne flute. It is super cheap, i think i normally pay about 6$ a bottle (and i am sure most places will give you a discount when you buy by the case), which i don’t know of any good moscato that cheap! you should seriously try it!!




also on the website you can get personalized labels!

Fiance and I always buy the Barefoot Moscato Spumante whenever we want to toast something special. It’s carbonated so you can serve it in champagne flutes and it’s sweet enough so most people will like it but it’s dry enough so it’s not super cloying.

@Treejewel19:  I second this. I freakin’ LOVE Moscato d’Asti. 🙂 I’ve always had this served in restaurants in a champagne flute. In fact, when we were at a fancy Italian restaurant in Las Vegas recently, this was served as a palate cleanser before the dessert. The one they served was this one: http://www.agferrari.com/product/tintero_moscato_d_asti/Sparkling. It was really good, though on the sweeter side.

Lol, Wine Lover here.

(And Mr TTR is hoping to be a Sommelier when he retires)

Agree with the other Bees, if you want to go with Moscato you may want to look at Moscato Bubbly, as it could fit your WISH LIST entirely.


As for glassware… Flutes would work… however the correct glass for Moscato is actually the “traditonal” Champagne Glass style (in that proper glassware when it comes to wine, does enhance the flavours)


Hope this helps,

@MeStephieP:  I’m with you on opting out of champagne. I, shamefully, love Asti Spumante. Like the cheap, $4.99 a bottle, Andre-brand kind. DISGRACEFUL! I totally want to serve that… but I can only imagine people’s reaction hahah. Moscato d’Asti might be a good alternative :oP

We just let everyone toast with whatever they were drinking. Darling Husband and I don’t drink (well he doesn’t and while I do technically, I don’t out of respect for him) and so we were drinking tea at the moment of our toast. We did, however, have a full open bar so most of our guests just toasts with their beer/wine/mixed drink.


If you’re worried about how it looks, just poor it in a champagne flute and call it a day. Honestly, no one will ever notice.
