The Aprons & Hammers Guide to Seafood & Wine Harmony

Updated: Nov 21, 2023

Hey there, wine enthusiasts and seafood lovers! Ready to elevate your next seafood feast with the perfect wine pairing? At Aprons & Hammers, especially at our Studio One Hotel location, we've got a sea of options to make your meal not just delicious, but truly memorable. Let’s dive into our world of wine and seafood pairing!

1. Oysters & Sparkling Wine: A Match Made in Heaven

Starting off with our Fine De Claire Oysters? Pop open a bottle of Prosecco DOC Casa Defra. The crisp, bubbly texture of sparkling wine complements the fresh, briny flavours of the oysters, creating a symphony in your mouth.

2. Grilled Seafood & Chardonnay: The Dream Team

If you’re going for something grilled, like our Grilled Lobster Platter, reach for a glass of Joseph Drouhin Mâcon-Bussières Les Clos. The buttery notes of a good Chardonnay blend beautifully with the smoky, charred flavours of grilled seafood.

3. Spicy Dishes & Riesling: Spice Meets Nice

Love a bit of a kick in your seafood? Pair our Firecracker Prawns with a slightly sweet Riesling. The sweetness of the wine balances out the heat, making each spicy bite a delightful experience.

4. Fish & Chips & Sauvignon Blanc: A Classic Combo

For a classic like Fish & Chips, a zesty Sauvignon Blanc is your go-to. Try it with Marlborough Mud House. The crisp acidity cuts through the richness of the fried fish, refreshing your palate with each sip.

5. Lobster Roll & Rosé: Summer in a Glass

Enjoying our Lobster Roll? A glass of M de Minuty Rosé is the perfect companion. The light, fruity notes of the rosé enhance the sweet, delicate flavours of the lobster, making it taste like summer on a plate.

6. Sushi & Pinot Grigio: A Delicate Dance

For our sushi lovers, a Pinot Grigio like Argento is a fantastic choice. It’s light enough not to overpower the delicate flavours of sushi but has enough character to stand up to the savoury soy and wasabi.

So, there you have it! Next time you’re at Aprons & Hammers, especially at our Studio One Hotel, let our drinks menu guide you to the perfect wine-seafood pairing. It’s not just a meal; it’s an experience that tantalises all your senses. Cheers to great food, great wine, and great times! 🍷🍤🎉
