Grilled Lobster at Home

Lobster is a favorite for many, but often seems out of reach when market price can break the bank. Luckily, grilling lobster at home is surprisingly easy! Go to your local seafood vendor, or even Costco, to pick up some tails. You don't have to buy whole live lobsters to make this fabulous meal at home.

The pungentness of thyme and lemon on the fish is best paired a Sauvignon Blanc with a good balance of acid and creamy finish. The Chateau Jean Faux Sauvignon Blanc was aged in neutral barrels and on its lees for 11 months creating more complex flavors and retained acidity. For a slightly more...
