MiMi en Provence Grande Réserve Rosé

This tasty, slightly dry French rosé goes beautifully with seafood, making it perfect alongside our Shrimp with Blush Sauce recipe. Perfectly balanced, with a crisp, long-lasting finish, it nicely complements the spicy elements in this dish. Made with a blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah grapes, this wine serves up hints of red berries and white peach.

Parini Prosecco

Made with Glera grapes grown in Italy’s Veneto region, this clean and crisp sparkling wine delivers a fruitiness that’s harmonious with this rich, yet mild, cheese. The prosecco’s bubbles and acidity cut nicely through the creaminess of our Wegmans Crèmeux de Bourgogne for balanced flavor on the palate. This is a perfect pairing to start your evening—serve it as you welcome your guests. It’s a true crowd-pleaser.

Bixby Creek Bridge Napa Valley Chardonnay

Another great pick for pairing with seafood, this Napa Chard is delicious alongside our Scallops with Garlic Pesto Sauce recipe. The wine’s tropical fruit and vanilla flavors beautifully complement the recipe’s savory-garlic notes. You’ll love the light hint of oak on the finish too. This is a combination you’ll want to try!
