Wine Pairing with Stone Crabs Dinner

Below are 5 wines to pair with a stone crab dinner. This list was curated by a handful of sommeliers in the Miami area who were invited to a delicious stone crab gathering in our headquarters in MKT Kitchen in Coral Gables, FL.

 1.  Champagne

Let’s face it, if you are looking for the right wine pairing with a stone crab dinner, the first thing that comes to mind is crisp, cold, champagne.

The key to selecting the right Champagne comes down to selecting a dry, or brut Champagne, or if you prefer, a Prosecco will also pair just as nicely. The excitement of having Florida stone crabs (the most delicatessen of all crustaceans) on the table, along with a loved one, family, or friends will have all your guests overflown with joy and emotion.

After all, the stone crab is the perfect humble brag.

 2. Santa Margherita, Pinot Grigio – Italy

 3. Castello di Bossi Chianti Classico Riserva Berardo 2016 – Tuscany, Italy

It’s critically acclaimed by James Sucking and garnered a score of 96. It’s sure to carry through on its finish and offer a delicious blend of the natural flavors of your stone crabs.

On the palate, it is dry and fruity, with mineral notes, and offers a very pleasant and long aftertaste.

 5. Villa Riviera Rosé Grande Reserve Cote De Provence – France

Originating from the oldest vineyards in France, the wines of Villa Riviera had never been exported before, until now.

This rosé comes from real lands of rosé, perfectly situated between Cannes and Saint-Tropez. They have centuries of history and are the wines that were selected by the Greeks and the Romans 2600 years BC due to their superior quality. This is what French people call a Rosé Gourmand, a Rosé of Connoisseurs, or simply a Gastronomic Rosé. Delicately fruity with mouth-watering notes of green apple, white peach, mango, and grapefruit.
