Sashimi should be paired with a wine that matches the delicacy of the fish. The wine should not be too try or not too sweet.
The freshness of sashimi is best matched with a zesty white, with good fruit and crisp acidity.
Tannin reds will not work.
Our best suggestion is a dry Riesling from Germany, Alsace, or USA.
Sashimi also loves bubbles.
Make it a habit to eat and drink local. Expand your skills to understand the passion that wine communicates. Explore the range of possibilities a grape can express through culture, terroir, and climate.
