Wine Pairing: Moscato d’Asti

by Joe Weis February 26, 2008
Wine Pairing: Moscato d’Asti

The perfect wine pairing for this dish would be crisp Champagne or a sweet

dessert wine, such as Moscato d’Asti.

This beautiful Italian wine is similar to

Asti Spumante but is not sparkling and

retails for about $15.

The “Sommelier” Joe Weis is the director of food

and beverage at Wish restaurant. With a degree in

hospitality management from the well-respected

University of Garmisch in his native land of

Germany and his passion for wine, he has been

regarded an expert in the field. “Wine was a big

part of my culture and with Germany’s proximity

to France there was always great wine in the

house.” Weis credits those childhood memories,

as well as time spent working in German wine

yards during college, for steering him towards

hospitality. Under Weis’ auspices, Wish has won

Wine Spectator’s “Award for Excellence” for four

consecutive years
