Recommended wine: Chardonnay, Muscadet, Riesling
Chardonnay, Muscadet, and Riesling are great choices for Shellfish. 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 Frank Family Vineyards Lewis Vineyard Reserve Chardonnay with a 5 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 62 dollars per bottle.
