Trout (or other rich fish) pairs best with light red wines or full bodied white wines.

Grilled Trout and a fruity (unoaked) Pinot Noir is a perfect pair. Pinot Noir picks up the richness of the Trout, and the taste of caramelized skin.

If you go for Chardonnay, it should not be heavily oaked. The oak will overpower a grilled Trout.

Sparkling wines also go werry well with grilled Trout.

Go Local

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.

Alcohol can be addictive. Drink in moderation.
