Pairing Seafood and Wine

lobster and white wineFrom lobster to clam, fish and shrimp, Cape Porpoise Lobster Company has a variety of seafood options to satisfy every palate. Match up one of our fresh-from-the-ocean catches with a bottle of wine for a romantic dinner with your other half. White wine is a light option that compliments the rich flavors of Maine seafood. Follow our guide to find the perfect match to tomorrow’s meal.

Lobster

Maine’s most popular dish, lobster is delicate and sweet. White wine goes best with this dish, with medium-bodied chardonnay being a classic pick. Look for an option with an oak flavor to compliment your delectable meal. Is chardonnay not for you? Try crisp pinot grigio. This dry white wine is perfect for a crustacean doused in lemon.

Shrimp

Compliment and smooth the crisp acidity of shrimp with brut sparkling wine. This white wine option cleanses the palate, making each bite a new experience! For the popular buttery, lemony shrimp scampi, we recommend a dry pinot grigio as well.

Crab

A crustacean that can be paired with a variety of white wines, we love Champagne with crab cakes. This bubbly number is great with both the fried exterior and sweet interior of the dish. When choosing a white wine to match your dinner, look for a crisp number with hints of mineral instead of oak.

Scallops

Great for hors d’oeuvres or dinner, sea scallops are a succulent option that taste best with a light, crisp wine like sauvignon blanc. The perfect counterpart to weight against a rich dish like scallops, this white wine tastes best chilled.
