Tomasello Blackberry Moscato is a blend of 100% Blackberry wine and Moscato. This blend combines the fruity and delicate character of Outer Coastal Plain Blackberries with the spicy perfume of Moscato. So easy to drink character with a hint of sparkle.
As was common during Prohibition, many in this great American wine-growing region became traditional farmers. In the 1930's, our grandfather, Frank Tomasello was a berry farmer in Hammonton, New Jersey. He was known for his raspberries, strawberries, peaches and sweet potatoes. But he had a special knack for growing grapes and a passion for wine. In February 1933, when Frank heard the federal government was repealing Prohibition and was ready to once again issue winery licenses he did not waste any time. He jumped into his truck and drove through a snow storm to Washington, DC to be one of the first in line for a license - he made it! Tomasello Winery was bonded that year, license number 68 for the entire country. In June of that year, New Jersey passed the 21st amendment repealing prohibition and Tomasello Winery was officially in business.
