Moscatell (Empordà) is a sweet Catalan wine, although varieties exist in other countries like France, Italy, Portugal, Albania, Slovenia, Greece, Romania, Turkey, etc. Catalan moscatell is thicker than most other varieties and is often drunk with or after dessert.

In Spain, Moscatell is produced in Andalusia, the Valencian Community, Navarre, Aragón and Catalonia, and the Canary Islands, sometimes using the solera system.

Muscatell is made from small berries and it is characterized by a sweet taste and scent that reminds of musk. There are several varieties of muscat, sometimes it indicating the origin: moscatell d'Alexandria, de Frontinhan, de Màlaga, etc.

Muscat is also used to produce some dry white wines — sometimes blended with other grape varieties.
