My Middle Name Should Be Moscato. Erin Moscato.

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Gallo Family Vineyards for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

I know what I'm about to say is going to shock a lot of people. I've been debating back and forth if I should come clean and go public with it...after much mental agony I've decided I feel comfortable enough sharing my secret. I like wine

So that was a lie. 

I really like wine. You know why I like wine? Because it tastes great. Especially Gallo Moscato. By the end of most days that end in Y, I am ready to have a few minutes to sit, do nothing, and have one glass. Some people like to read, I drink one glass of Gallo Wine.

Fortunately, I am not the only one who likes to unwined once in awhile. I know this only because there is a whole freaking day dedicated to my favorite kind of wine, Moscato. You know all these soon to be national holidays that keep popping up (and that I keep praying we get off work for)? Well, May 9th is my favorite one of them alll -- National Moscato Day. The night before leaving for Arizona I was all like "But hunny! National Moscato Day is coming up! WE HAVE TO DRINK SOME!" And so then Shawn was all like "OKAY WE CAN!" because he knows that when I yell about such things he dare not yell differencing of opinions back. And so that's what we did. We had ourselves a nice little moscato loving date. 

So here's some tips for you wine newbies! There are three different kinds of Moscato (I KNOW. WHAT!) I always thought it had to be white. Not being prejudiced against the reds of the world but for whatever reason that's just how my brain operated. Well guess what party people? There are several types of Moscato starting of course with the traditional white which is full of fruit flavors. And then we have my new favorite, Red Moscato which is a medium bodied wine. Last but not least we have our Pink Moscato which has a rose tint to it. Just an FYI on this one but I have tried many of wines and Gallo is certainly one of (if not my absolute) favorites.
