Two outstanding wine families joined forces when Armando De Zan married Elviana Candoni almost 30 years ago. Both had winemaking history in the Veneto going back more than 150 years. Today the winery continues to be run by Armando and Elviana, joined by their two daughters, Barbara and Caterina.
It's one thing to have a great property on which to grow grapes and make wine. It's quite another to have that and centuries of history to live up to. It instills a different outlook, work ethic, and zeal. After all, you're not just honoring history, you're also creating it. And, that's how the Candoni De Zan family views it.
The Muscat grape is the oldest grape on the planet. It was the first to be turned into wine some 8,000 years ago and has been one of the most popular wines over the course of that time. Part of its popularity is that Muscat gets very ripe and thus, almost always has a level of sweetness. With no refrigeration and no vessel to keep the wine from oxidation, Muscat's sugar level allows it to taste good over a longer period of time than any other wine.
Our selection is a textbook example of Moscato. It is light, refreshing and though pleasantly sweet, its balanced acidity leaves your palate clean and refreshed. The slight sparkle is the perfect touch to have with dessert, as dessert, or even to accompany a myriad of savory dishes like crab salad, sushi, or orange and vodka spiked chicken.
