I sat back in my chair the other day when it hit me like a ton of bricks.  I talk about food constantly.  Sometimes I wonder if it’s actually the center of my universe. This realization also makes me smile.   My 21-year-old son is becoming quite the chef in the kitchen these days.  I guess I am rubbing off on him.   With my trio of Gallo Family Vineyards Moscato sitting at our tiny bar in the dining room, he asked if I was planning on opening them any time soon. He let me know that he had plans to try cooking with wine.  And to think he was such a picky eater only a few short years ago.

Yes, Gallo Family Vineyards produces three varieties of Moscato!

Last but not least, Red, for the extrovert, with its refreshing bursts of sweet citrus and peach, and a berry finish.

He grinned and reminded me to make enough for him to try too.

Later I discovered he decided to experiment with his beloved caramelized onions using the Pink.  Let me tell you, it was the perfect choice.

I admit that I am not the most patient person in the world when it comes to cooking or baking.  When something takes a long time it reminds me of the old adage “A watched pot will never boils”.

However, it was my lucky day.  Marinated grapes are easy to prepare.  I bathed the grapes in the Moscato and then left for the day.  When I returned, I completed the second step of rolling them in the sugar and freezing them.

This process, which began Saturday morning had impeccable timing for a nice and relaxing Sunday afternoon.  There is nothing better than munching on grapes marinated wine and sipping on wine marinated with grapes.  It’s like a “twofer”.  Two recipes in one. Double the enjoyment.  You get the picture.

Pour yourself some refreshing Gallo Family Vineyards Moscato Wine, raise your glass and celebrate National Moscato Day with the rest of us.

  11. How intriguing is THIS! I have to try it. I love frozen grapes, and they’re only going to get BETTER marinated in this nectar.

I love hearing from my readers!
