Moscato d’Asti (and the Orange Bowl) – Drink Bravely with Mark Oldman – Episode 27

While attending the 2011 Orange Bowl, Mark looks to Moscato d’Asti for a taste of victory and what he calls the “official dessert wine of those who don’t like dessert wine.”  Lightly sweet, gently bubbly, and low in alcohol, Moscato d’ Asti sets the right mood to witness Coach Jim Harbaugh, QB Andrew Luck, and the rest of the Stanford Cardinal triumph over Virginia Tech to cap a stunning 12-1 season.
