Recipe: Nantucket Lobster Chowder
We love: Bonterra Vineyards Chardonnay (about $14)
Rich, buttery lobster is just right with a rich, buttery Chardonnay. Because this recipe calls for ¼ cup of Chard, remember this wine rule: Always choose a wine to cook with that you also like to drink! Because cooking with wine concentrates its flavors, great wine will taste better in this chowder, and the taste of not-so-great wine will become even more pronounced. Go for the good stuff!
