Recommended wine: Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Pinot Noir

Scallops can be paired with Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, and Pinot Noir. Chardonnay and chenin blanc are great matches for grilled or seared scallops. If your scallops are being matched with bacon or other cured meats, try a lightly chilled pinot noir. The Rochioli Estate Chardonnay with a 4.3 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 42 dollars per bottle.

This wine is a fine example of the unique characteristics from the Rochioli property and the Russian River Valley. Aromas of ripe apple, tropical fruit, hazelnut and a touch of spice combine with the rich apple flavors and crisp acidity.
