WHITE WINESNo seafood and wine pairing list would be complete without white wine. It’s arguably the most natural choice, but far from boring if you change it up from a zingy Sauvignon Blanc to a subtly oaked Chardonnay.

RED WINES: Red wine, really? That’s right! If you’ve never tried a light red with seafood, you should add it to you ‘to do’ list immediately. It’s not perfect for all seafood dishes, but is very satisfying with fish fare that has bold flavors and lots of spice.
