With Labor Day approaching, we thought we would talk about a few of our favorite wines for the holiday. It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Moscato as I have featured it many many times before for our Wine features that we typically do every Wednesday.
Labor Day is no exception and a good tasting moscato goes perfect with the festivities.
