Beringer Moscato review: What's its alcohol content?
Beringer Moscato wine’s alcohol content is 11.5%.
In case you wonder about alcohol content or more precisely Alcohol By Volume, i.e. ABV, measure the alcoholic strength of a drink.
There is a direct relationship between the sugar left in the wine after the alcoholic fermentation has taken place, i.e. Residual Sugar or RS, and ABV.
During alcoholic fermentation, the yeast transforms the sugar in the grape juice into alcohol.
Grapes with high residual sugar will therefore produce dry wine with a high ABV.
How many calories are in a glass of Beringer Moscato wine?
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture  a 5-ounce glass will contain about 120 to 130 calories.
Alcohol contains 7 calories per gram. So a wine with high ABV will have a higher calories per glass than a wine with low ABV.
Furthermore, sugar contributes to the calorie count.
A dry wine will usually have 4 calories per gram vs a sweet wine that will have around 20 calories per gram of carbs, which include sugar.
Since Moscato is a sweet wine expect more than 130 calories per 5-ounce glass.
What is Beringer Main & Wine?
Here is an extract from the Beringer Main & Wine website itself:
“Nestled at the end of Main Street America, where the shops fade into the California vineyards, you will find Main & Vine.
It’s a wine where time-honored values blend seamlessly with generations of winemaking craftsmanship to create one of America’s favorite wine brands.“
This is a sweet and luscious bottle of Moscato that for roughly ~$10 offers a good value for your money.
Ripe pear, peach, and apple flavors will complement many dishes from veggie, salami, spicy dishes, fish, cheese, and dessert.
Try it with figs, Indian cuisine, clams, Parmigiano, or fruit tart and it’ll be a delight. At least it was for me!
