The "natural sweetness" indicated by the name is brought about by fortifi-cation, which halts the fermentation and thus leaves grape sugars unfer-mented in the finished wines. Made according to traditional methods in the Languedoc and Roussillon regions, these wines, of which the best-known is Muscat de Beaumes--de-Venise, are mainly drunk in France, where they are prized as aperitifs. There are several types, and a range of appellations, mostly strung along the Mediter-ranean coast.
