Recommended wine: Vin Santo, Moscato, Ice Wine
Vin Santo, Moscato, and Ice Wine are my top picks for Pumpkin Pie. Vin santo is typically sweet with notes of baking spices and nuts, so it pairs really well with pumpkin spiced desserts. A good sparkling Moscato would work too, and if you feel like splurging, an ice wine. The Terra d'Oro Moscato with a 4.9 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 18 dollars per bottle.
Terra d'Oro MoscatoThe Terra d'Oro Muscato has intoxicating aromas of perfumed peach blossom and fresh honeysuckle. A sweet, creamy lemon cheesecake flavor is accompanied by bright fresh apricot and white peach fruit on the palate. Crisp acidity keeps the mouthfeel rich and balanced with lingering notes of rose petal on the finish. This Moscato is perfectly paired to fresh fruit desserts or with spicy Thai or Indian dishes.
