Sparkling white wine to pair with a crab dinner
Photography by Annabelle Breakey

A great sparkler (with your holiday crab)

A good sparkler made completely from Chardonnay ― aka Blanc de Blancs ― has all those sweet apple and creamy citrus flavors and lively bubbles that set crab off so well. Our current favorite is Schramsberg 2005 Blanc de Blancs (it won our Special Occasion White Wine of the Year Award in November's Sunset Wine Awards).

 And our current favorite crab dish? How can there be just one?
