Recommended wine: Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling
Chowder works really well with Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Riesling. Chowder can benefit from a crisp white to cut through the rich, creamy broth - or you can go big or go home with a rich, buttery chardonnay. The Cycles Gladiator Chardonnay with a 4.5 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 13 dollars per bottle.
