Recipe: Grilled Split Lobster with Pesto
We love: Matanzas Creek Winery Sonoma Valley Chardonnay (about $27)
The luxury of fresh-from-the-sea lobster means you’ll want to serve a wine that’s born to play that essential supporting role, and there may be no better choice than a well-balanced Chardonnay. Look for a crisp, light sipper that won’t muddle the flavors of the rich grilled lobster and the cheesy, nutty, herbaceous pesto.
Other can’t-miss matches: Sauvignon Blanc, brut sparkling wine
