The Moscato grape has found its chosen home in a hilly range of 52 tiny villages running through three provinces in South Piedmont, but the latest scientific research tells us that moscato was actually the first grape ever cultivated, the progenitor of the entire vinegrowing industry and the mother of all the infinite varieties that have evolved. The grape is roller-pressed as it was in the 17th Century, after which the solids, skins and stalks, are separated to preserve the full flavor of the grape.
