What To Pair with Your Nantucket Catch of the Day?

One of the many benefits of living on the pristine island of Nantucket is that you are completely surrounded by water. In every direction you turn, almost all roads lead to a serene sandy beach.

The size of the sand varies from soft, finely grained to being course and rough, or perhaps somewhere in between. It is also important to consider the movement of the waves on the beach as in influencer on your beach experience.

Consider this inequality with Sauvignon Blanc wines that come from different growing climates, varying soil types and diverse production methods.
