There are a multitude of white wines that can partner shellfish and often it is best to choose a wine local to where it was harvested. This is not always the case; Chablis is nowhere near the sea, but partly because there are oyster shell fossils in the limestone soils that impart a certain mineral quality to the wine, it partners these silky bivalves beautifully. Other light, dry whites work very well, such as sparkling wine, Muscadet, Picpoul de Pinet, Sauvignon Blanc, Verdejo and Verdicchio.
