Which White Wine to Pair with Your Seafood

In general, delicate fish goes well with a lighter white wine, and a heavy fish will pair better with a richer, full-bodied wine. Here are some recommendations:

Mild Flavored, Lean & Flaky Fish

This category includes sea bass, branzino, black sea bass, flounder, perch, sole, fluke, tilapia, wild striped bass, halibut, pollock, and haddock.

Wine pairings we think you will love:

Medium Flavored & Textured Fish

This group includes firmer fish that tend to hold up to richer sauces and ingredients, such as trout, arctic char, catfish, red snapper, grouper, cod, haddock, redfish, halibut, monkfish, Chilean seabass, and Escobar.

Wine pairings we think you will love:

Firm & Meaty Fish

In this category you will find fish that are firm and meaty with a steak-like texture, including tuna, bluefish, salmon, mahi mahi, shark, monkfish and swordfish.

Wine pairings we think you will love:

Strong, Intensely Flavored Fish
