For now, I'd stick with established vintners for those because everyone seems to be trying to get in their current popularity. There are some Napa vineyards that are doing okay with these, but for the really good stuff, go back to the Moscato grapes roots and buy from someone like Giorgio Rivetti. If your prefer American wine, I'd look for something out of Oregon's Yamhill County; Moscato's a cool-season grape that's going to to do better there than in Napa.

As an alternative, you could look to Riesling and Viognier for sweeter (non-dessert) wines. Take a look at German Rieslings labeled halbtrocken, kabinett, Spätlese, Auslese, Beerenauslese and Trockenbeerenauslese (TBA).

Some other varietals/wines to consider:
Sparkling wine (varies, depending on how much residual sugar is in a particular wine)
Sherry
Port
Sauternes
Tokaji
Chenin Blanc (see also Loire Valley white wine, Languedoc white wine)
Gewurztraminer (aka white Alsace)

best value Moscato is an Elvio Tintero moscato (from Piedmont, Italy)... imported by the famous wineshop/distributor Kermit Lynch in Berkeley. It runs about $10 or so. They also make a much drier version that's semi-sparkling called Grangia.

Similarly sweet-styled is a sparkling Torrontes from Argentina called Il Dolce.

Moscato D'asti (Tintero) is good and sweet.

My wife is a moscato drinker and does like the d'Asti, as well as one called Roscato, which is like a blend of rose and moscato.
