Frequently Asked Questions

What wines are considered Dessert Wines?

Dessert Wine is usually sweet with pronounced flavor and higher alcohol content. For example, Port, Madeira or Sherry are traditional Dessert Wines with more than 14% alcohol by volume (ABV). That said, there are low-alcohol Dessert Wines with less than 10% ABV such as Muscadet, Moscato d’Asti, and Brachetto d’Acqui.

When should I drink Dessert Wine?

These tongue-pleasing sippers are ideally enjoyed with dessert or as dessert itself. When pairing wine with sweet dessert, it's best to choose one that's sweeter than the dish to avoid any bitter aftertaste.

What is Ice Wine?

Ice Wine is another type of dessert wine produced from grapes that have been frozen while still on the vine.
