Origin Greece

Muscat Rose à Petits Grains is a wine grape for white wine that is a member of the Muscat family of Vitis vinifera. Its name comes from its characteristic small berry size and tight clusters, and from its skin colour. It's a variation of the more common Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains with a pinkish colour. Muscat Rouge à Petits Grains is a further variation with deeper skin colour.

It originates from Greece,[1] and is one of three varieties, together with Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains and Muscat Ottonel, allowed for Alsace wine labelled Muscat d'Alsace.[2]


Muscat Rose à Petits Grains is known under the synonyms Moscatel Roxo, Moscato Rosa, Muscat à Petits Grains Roses, and Red Frontignac.[1] Muscato Rosa is also the primary name of another Muscat variety, mostly grown in Italy, and which is known as Muscat Rose in French, i.e., without the "Petits Grains" part.[3]
