Seafood, Wine, and Everything Fine!
Just because you love, love meat as much as we do, doesn’t mean you can’t be crazy about fish, too. Whether you crave a hearty or light meal, there’s a fish for that. We’ve got some sustainable seafood recommendations that will reel in even the most committed carnivores.
Before we get to the good stuff, a few words about sustainability.
It has been a seafood buzzword for sometime now, but what does it really mean? A lot of different things to different people, it seems.
At Rastelli, sustainable means top-quality seafood raised right so it tastes good, is good for you and ensures we’ll all have enough of it for generations to come. Like our Faroe Island Salmon, which is raised by eco-friendly fisheries in pens with free flowing water in its natural environment and fed an all-natural diet. And, all of our sustainable seafood has the distinction of being Best Aquacultural Practices (BAP) certified. All of which makes us—and hopefully you!—feel confident about eating more seafood.
Whether you're going out to a fancy restaurant or preparing a gourmet seafood dinner at home, pairing your dish with the right wine can really enrich the taste of your meal. Though it's typically said that white wine goes best with fish, certain wine varieties pair best with the different types of seafood. Along with the type of fish, wine pairings are also determined by how the fish is served and prepared. Refer to our guide for help choosing the perfect seafood and wine pairings.

There is no better time for backyard cookouts than the warm days of summer, when friends and family can gather to enjoy some great weather and fantastic food.
