Muscat Blanc à petit Grains is the oldest known Muscat grape variety. The name would suggest a French origin, but the muscat grape is most likely brought to the Roman Empire by the Greeks, who on their turn brought it from Asia. As the oldest member of the Muscat grape family, Muscat Blanc à petit Grain has an excellent reputation and is cultivated in most Mediterranean countries and far beyond for dry, medium, sweet and sparkling wines. Well-known names are Muscat d’Alsace, Moscato Bianco, Moscato d’Asti, Moscatel de Grano Menudo and the South African Muskadel.
