Wine and Seafood: An Unforgettable Pairing Experience at Veramar Vineyard
Wine and seafood make for a classic culinary pairing, delighting food lovers with their harmonious flavors. The freshness and subtle flavors of seafood can be beautifully accentuated by the right wine, and finding that perfect match is a gastronomic adventure worth embarking upon. In this post, we’ll dive into the delicious world of seafood and wine pairing, featuring one of our favorite matches with a Veramar wine.
First, a general guideline: Light, crisp white wines tend to be a safe bet with most seafood. The wine’s acidity helps cut through the richness of the fish, balancing flavors and enhancing the overall dining experience. But like all rules, this one has its exceptions, and adventurous pairings can lead to delightful discoveries.
One such exceptional pairing is the classic Maine Lobster Roll from Cousins Maine Lobster paired with our Veramar Vineyard Seyval Blanc. The light, bright acidity of the Seyval Blanc beautifully complements the rich, buttery flavors of the lobster roll. Each bite of lobster is elevated by a sip of Seyval, creating a symphony of flavors that’s sure to delight any seafood lover.
And we have exciting news: Cousins Maine Lobster food truck will be joining us at Veramar Vineyard for our Country Concert Under the Stars on August 12th at 7 pm! It’s the perfect opportunity to indulge in this divine pairing while enjoying some fantastic country music under the beautiful Virginia sky.

Other seafood and wine pairing suggestions include:
~Oysters with Veramar’s stainless steel Chardonnay. The wine’s crispness and minerality enhance the oysters’ brininess, creating a harmonious blend of sea and vine.
~Grilled shrimp pairs wonderfully with our Veramar Vineyard Rose. The wine’s light fruitiness and refreshing acidity balance the shrimp’s smoky, sweet flavors.
~For seared scallops, consider our Veramar Founder White. The wine’s rich, full-bodied profile matches the scallops’ buttery texture, while its crisp finish cleanses the palate.
Remember, the best pairing is one that brings you joy, so don’t be afraid to experiment and find your own personal favorite pairings. Whether you’re a seafood enthusiast, a wine lover, or both, we look forward to welcoming you to Veramar Vineyard for an unforgettable pairing experience.
