If you are looking for the best wine to pair with your favorite seafood dish, continue reading to learn more! 

What Kind Of Wine Goes With Seafood?

The right glass of wine can bring out the best in a seafood dish. Our wine restaurant in Huntington, NY strives to give customers a stellar dining experience, so our staff is well-versed in the most flavorful food and wine pairings. It can be daunting to pair wine with seafood on your own, but our team would like to share some go-to wine varieties that complement seafood dishes:

  • Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling – A light and crisp wine such as a Riesling or Sauvignon blanc boasts a refreshing acidity that highlights the flavor of a delicious Branzino dish, which is one of our past Chef’s specials! These wines pair best with white, lean, and flaky fish and enhance their delicate flavors. 
  • Chardonnay and Pinot Noir – Heartier fish dishes often carry intense flavors, so choosing a wine that delivers rich, substantial flavors is best. A rich, oaky glass of Chardonnay will enhance a salmon filet or tuna steak. While most people believe white wine is the only pairing for fish, a number of reds will pair well with a hearty fish dish. Order a glass of Pinot Noir with our Salmon Scozzese or enjoy some Chardonnay with our Tuna Tartare. 
  • Chablis, Chardonnay, Sparkling Wine – These crisp wines will bring out the crisp quality of most shellfish dishes. Enjoy our versatile selection of crisp, dry wines with Grilled Jumbo Shrimp, oysters, or our Linguine Nere con Gamberi. 

When you dine at Jonathan’s Ristorante, our staff will help you select the perfect wine for your seafood dish. Our well-stocked temperature-controlled wine cellar contains several selections from small vineyards across the globe. Our Chef’s specials change regularly, so be sure to visit our website to check for delicious updates.
