Never made anything like this. Combine the juices of Steuben, Catawba and Concord then ferment and see what we get. Vivid and boundless fruity aromas and flavors initially and then right at the end, bingo,some Concord! Whoa!!

Sweet scents of peaches and exotic fruit.
Interesting Facts: The estate lies entirely within the Monferrato area in the Province of Asti, one of Piedmont’s finest wine zones. 80% of its vineyards are in the district of Portacomaro, whilst 20% are at Costigliole d’Asti. The Monferrato is quite unlike any other viticultural region: here the vineyards alternate with woodland and fields, and there is great variation in the zone’s hillsides, even in the colour of their soils. It takes its name from the medieval stronghold that dominates it, and which once belonged to the noble Bunéis family. Its northern part is today still referred to, in dialect, as the Val del Temp (which means Valley of the Temple) because the Templars had properties there, as testified by the Codex Astensis, the only authenticated record of events in Asti during the Middle Ages. The last surviving member of the Bunéis family left the estate in his will to the Bishop of Acqui who often summered there in the 18th century.
Muscat / Moscato
Alluringly aromatic and delightful, Muscat never takes itself too seriously. Muscat is actually an umbrella name for a diverse set of grapes, some of which are genetically related and some of which, are not. The two most important versions are the noble, Muscat blanc à Petits Grains, making wines of considerable quality and Muscat of Alexandria, thought to be a progeny of the former. Both are grown throughout the world and can be made in a wide range of styles from dry to sweet, still to sparkling and even fortified. It is well known in Italy's Piedmont region for Moscato d’Asti, a slightly sparkling, semi-sweet, refreshing wine that is low in alcohol. On the Iberian peninsula, it goes by Moscatel, not to be confused with Bordeaux's Muscadelle, which is acutally unrelated.
In the Glass:
Muscat wines possess marked aromatics and flavors of peach, pear, Meyer lemon, orange, orange blossom, rose petal, jasmine, honeysuckle or lychee, often with a hint of sweet spice.
Thanks to its naturally low alcohol levels, Muscat is a perfect match for spicy Asian cuisine, especially when the wine has a little bit of residual sugar. Off-dry Muscat can work well with lighter desserts like key lime pie and lemon meringue, while fully sweet Muscat-based dessert wines are enjoyable after dinner with an assortment of cheeses.
Sommelier Secret Muscat is one of the oldest known grape varieties, dating as far back as the days of the ancient Greeks and Romans. Pliny the Elder wrote in the 13th century of a sweet, perfumed grape variety so attractive to bees that he referred to it as uva apiana, or “grape of the bees.” Most likely, he was describing one of the Muscat varieties.

After sharing the Antique Church Recipe Favorite Spaghetti and Pizza Sauce recipe with you, I later came across this dough recipe further back in the book. This recipe will complete the full recipe if you decide to make pizza. I would also love to hear what else you make with this dough recipe.
This recipe is also Antique, coming from the same old Church recipe that I found the sauce recipe in.
There was a spot I noticed in the recipe that was missing a number, and that is the indication of how much flour is to be used in the initial mixture. I have used a bold font in the recipe to indicate this is where you will want to pay attention. Could be a repeat of the above lines 3/8 c.?
St. John's Pizza Dough
2 Tbsp. Yeast
3/4 c. Milk
1/4 c. Sugar
1 Tbsp. Salt
3/8 c. Oil
Sprinkle yeast over water. Let sit for at least 10 minutes.
Stir in milk and oil.
Sift sugar, salt, and flour.
Add to yeast mixture.
Add enough flour to form dough. Roll out crust large enough for a cookie sheet.
Shopping for the perfect Spaghetti and Pizza sauce is often like buying a wine, you know nothing about it, usually the fancy labeling is the main selling point besides price. I am one whom does not like the sweet tasting sauces, but prefer a natural tomato taste.
This is a antique recipe (around 24 years I am estimating), it comes to you from a book I dug out of my old closet. This recipe is from the small Church & School in my hometown, let me know if you enjoy it!
St. John's Spaghetti and Pizza Sauce
3 c. Tomato Paste
4 c. Water
1/2 tsp. Garlic Salt
2 Tbsp. Oregano
3 Tbsp. Chili Powder
1/2 c. Sugar
Mix all the ingredients together and simmer.
For spaghetti: Add 2 pounds browned beef and spaghetti: simmer for 15 minutes.
For Pizza: Add 2 pounds browned beef and spread on pizza.
