Wine Women And Song In Hip-Hop Culture

Mar 03, 2013, 01:18 AM

"When things get hard to swallow we need a bottle of Mascoto." Moscato is today’s wine celebrity in contemporary hip hop. In fact, sales have raised 70% (according to Nielsen) thanks to hip hop. You can find mentions in Waka Flocka Flame’s No Hands, Trey Songz’ I Invented Sex and of course Ab Soul’s Moscato featuring Kendrick Lamar. The popularity of Moscato is also falling right in line with today’s low-alcohol wine trends.

Good Food’s wine guru Stacie Hunt talks about wine, women and song this weekend on Good Food. Plus, she gives us the low down on Moscato. This segment aired on KCRW's Good Food on March 1, 2013.
