Muscat Wines of the United States
The United States is the fourth largest wine producing country in the world with most of the wine coming from California. Muscat is not mentioned in the list of America's most popular grapes. Regardless of this, Muscat, represented by a number of different varieties, is grown in many American states.

Muscat in some form or another has been grown in California for a long time. Some cheaper Muscat wines are labeled as "Muscatel" while the finer wines are called "Muscat", "Moscato" or another appropriate varietal name.

The 2007 USDA, NASS ACREAGE STANDING lists Muscat of Alexandria as the most planted Muscat grape in the state, followed by Muscat Blanc A Petits Grains (Muscat Canelli), Symphony (a cross between Grenache Gris and Muscat of Alexandria), Muscat Orange (there is no expert consensus on whether this is truly a member of the Muscat family), and Muscat Hamburg (Black Hamburg). The grapes are used to produce mostly sweet varietal wines and many different blends ranging from dryish to sweet.

In addition to these varieties, California grows small amounts of some lesser known Muscat varieties: Early Muscat (a cross between Muscat Hamburg x Queen of the Vineyard), Golden Muscat ( a cross between Muscat Hamburg x Diamond), and July Muscat (a cross between four Muscat varieties).

Quady is a California winery that specializes in the lesser know Muscat grapes. It produces luscious dessert wines primarily from Orange Muscat  (Essensia)and Black Hamburg (Elysium). Other well known Calfornia Muscat wines are Muscat de Beaulieu, a fortified wine from the Napa Valley, Vin de Glaciere (icewine) and Conundrum (a blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignan Blanc and Muscat Blanc A Petits Grains).

Neither Oregon nor Washington show any variety of Muscat in their lists of major grapes grown by the state but some Muscat is grown in the region.

Muscat Ottonel is found in the Columbia Valley and the Williamette Valley. Muscat Blanc A Petits Grains, Early Muscat and Black Hamburg are also grown.

Washington is very similar to Oregon. Some Muscat is grown including Muscat Blanc A Petits Grains, Orange Muscat, and Black Hamburg.

New York state grows a hybrid Muscat grape called New York Muscat (a cross between Muscat Hamburg x Ontario). The grape was developed for colder climates and has an intense and sweetly-perfumed Muscat taste. It is primarily used for sweet dessert wines. Some ice wine is made from New York Muscat. There has been limited production of dry wines from this grape, similar to the dry Alsatian Muscats.

Producers on the East Coast also grow a newly developed hybrid (2006) called Valvin Muscat (a cross between Muscat du Moulin x Muscat Ottonel). The grape is highly flavored and ripens mid-season.

There is a sprinkling of the lesser known Muscats grown in other American states.
