5 Wines to Pair with Seafood

Author: Dan Dunn Think Mediterranean bottles—or classic Champagne—when pairing wines with crustaceans and fish. Photo: Courtesy Domaine Sigalas   When it comes to food and wine pairings, seafood can be a wildcard—primarily because there’s so much variety to be found within the category. Lobster’s flavor doesn’t much resemble a scallop, and the heartiness of trout in no way resembles the delicate taste of shrimp. The idea that fish should only be served with white wine is incorrect, but pervasive. Still, while a Pinot Noir might complement salmon beautifully, it will almost completely blot out a nice piece of flounder. In [...]

How to Pair Red Wine with Fish

Author: Nils Bernstein Crispy sea bream / Getty   While white wine with seafood has long been traditional advice, try pairing the right red wine with fish to truly elevate your next meal. Sure, the pairing dogma of “white with fish, red with meat” seems antiquated, but it also appears logical, doesn’t it? But logic leads us to enjoy red wine with fish as well.
