Wine Wednesday – How To Pair With “Surf and Turf”
A very common combination during the holiday season is what’s often referred to as “surf and turf.” People enjoy having the best of both worlds, and it’s an incredibly decadent meal that’s perfect for special occasions and holiday celebrations.
Whether you’re enjoying “surf and turf” at Morton’s or at a dinner party, I wanted to give you some wine pairing tips to help take your meal to the next level. When selecting wines, people automatically think red goes with meat and white goes with seafood. While that’s often the best case scenario, there are some wines that are paired equally well with both the surf and the turf.
Both of these wines are available for a limited time at Morton’s, alongside our take on “surf and turf”— Classic Combination. We pair a Filet Mignon or New York Strip Steak with your choice of a Cold Water Lobster Tail or Alaskan King Crab Legs. Add to that a salad to start you meal and grilled Asparagus to complement it, and you’ve got an exceptional “surf and turf” meal! (Our Classic Combination Menu is available now through New Year’s Eve, so keep this in mind if you dine at Morton’s during the holidays.)
What’s your favorite wine to pair with both meat and seafood? I’d love to hear what you’ve found that stands up to them both.
