Fruits de Mer

Fruits de Mer
Gavin Chanin starting his own winery, Chanin Wines, in 2004 after gaining experience in South Africa, New Zealand, and his local Santa Barbara County in California.

Gavin was named one of Forbes' “30 under 30” in Food and Wine and a “Winemaker to Watch” by the San Francisco Chronicle, quite the accolade. He has mastered his terroir where he plants Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in the hills of Santa Rita and Santa Barbara. He particularly favours old vines, and also uses the bottles as a showcase for his artwork.

What to drink with... Fruits de Mer.

If you’re having a Seafood Platter, don’t overpower the delicate flavour of the shellfish, try our Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico, our Château Civrac Wild White or one of our Sancerres. With oysters, don’t add a condiment like lemon or vinegar, instead let your wine do the job: Domaine Bernard Moreau Bourgogne-Aligoté, Domaine des Hâtes Chablis or, if you’re feeling adventurous, our Maestro Sierra Fino Sherry. Stuffed, baked shellfish will pair well with a white Rioja: Bodegas Las Orcas Decenio Blano. If you’re planning lobster & chips with a dollop of mayo on the side, then try an oaked Chardonnay or a Bandol rosé.
