Now that Commercial Dungeness Crab season has officially commenced – finally – it’s time to set aside some great whites that pair well with the tasty crustaceans.
While the season extends until June, the November kick off is always a celebration for our family. Crab, put simply, is a treat. It’s easy. It’s refreshing. It’s tasty. Best of all, it’s not a complicated wine pairing. Here’s the trick: Find wines that don’t upstage the crab or mask its subtle flavors. With this mindset, check out these smart producers listed with their refreshing varietal:
Nigl Gruner Veltliner
Condes de Albarei Albarino
Spann Vineyards Chardonnay-Viognier
Mondavi Fume Blanc
Sip in the season.
