Recommended wine: Chardonnay, Riesling, Muscadet
Clams can be paired with Chardonnay, Riesling, and Muscadet. Buttery chardonnay is great for scallops, shrimp, crab, and lobster, while muscadet is a classic pick for mussels, oysters, and clams. If you've got some spice in your shellfish, a semi-dry riesling can balance out the heat. The Brick & Mortar Manchester Ridge Vineyard Chardonnay with a 4.9 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 40 dollars per bottle.
