Two Wine Cups

Sauvignon Blanc

Sancerre, Loire Valley, France

This one was easy for us: a classic French dish calls for French wine. A crisp & clean Sauvignon goes beautifully with the herbs in the sauce, and won't overpower the subtlety of the mussels. While you can find this wine produced in most parts of the world, stick with French Sauvignon blanc from the Loire Valley (Sancerre is where it's at).

Conversation Starters

Some mussels can live up to 50 years, and freshwater varieties are known to produce pearls.

The name Sauvignon Blanc translates to 'wild white', as this white grape variety initially grew wild in the Loire Valley.
