Moscato, in case you didn’t know, is a sweet white wine. And flipflop Moscato has floral aromas, a semi-sweet palate, and a soft, lingering finish. (This is according to the flipflop Wines website–like I said, I know nothing about such things. Nothing!) It goes well with Asian foods and is best served chilled.
I recently had the opportunity to try flipflop Moscato for myself. I enjoy flipflop Wines because they’re affordable and, as you might guess from their name, they’re a pretty laid back brand. So laid back that when I mentioned in my last review that I like to drink my wine mixed with Sprite (a delicious drink I like to call Sprine), they didn’t even bat an eye. This? Is my kind of wine company.
What I love about Moscato is that it’s the one wine that’s sweet enough on its own that I don’t feel the need to add Sprite to it. Although Moscato is best paired with Asian-inspired menus, my husband and I shared a bottle over a Wild Mushroom and Potato Pizza dinner. Like I said, it’s not the best pairing, but I found the crisp, refreshing flavor of the Moscato to be a nice complement to the rich, decadent pizza. A yin-and-yang type thing, if you will. After a stressful work week, it was nice to unwind a little with a glass of my sweet, sweet wine.
Apart from the actual wines themselves, I also like flipflop because they take social responsibility and charitable giving seriously. They’ve formed a partnership with Soles4Souls (fitting for a brand with the name flipflop, right?) to provide shoes for children in the developing world. This year, flipflop wines and Underdog Wine Merchants are working towards a goal of providing 11 million pairs of shoes to those in need. That’s a lot of shoes and each pair makes a big difference in a child’s life.
