The origins of the Muscat grape are not entirely clear, although some believe that these grapes date all the way back to ancient Egyptians and Persians. More commonly it is thought that Muscat grapes originated with the ancient Greeks and Romans and classical writers like Columella and Pliny the Elder describe a grape that was very sweet and attractive to bees, but there is no historical documentation to confirm that the grapes written about were actually Muscat grapes. English Franciscan scholar Bartholomeus Anglicus provided the first documented mention of wine made from the Muscat grape in his De proprietatibus rerum, written sometime between 1230 to 1240.
