Our Top Oyster Wines

Shucking Revelations 6-Pack

Our Top Oyster Wines Shucking Revelations 6-Pack - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

Here in Berkeley, we are getting ready to celebrate Oyster Bliss, the mother of all KLWM parties. At our last major event featuring oysters, over three thousand ill-fated bivalves met their end at the hands of our skilled shuckers, so consider this message a warning to countless more of the delicious mollusks: your days are hereby limited.
    As mysterious as the age-old question, “Who in the world decided to crack one of those rock-looking things open, and then had the cojones to put that slimy creature in their mouth??” is the equally curious rumination of who was the first to let their grape juice rot and decided the results were worthy of re-creating. Could these two serendipitous developments have evolved analogously? In a place like the Pays Nantais, on France’s Atlantic coast, it is tempting to entertain such speculation: when that bin of grapes went sour, producing an intoxicating nectar recalling the brisk, salty ocean winds that batter the shoreline, could it have prompted adventurous locals to create the first-ever wine-and-oyster pairing?
    Perhaps we’ll never know the answers to these timeless questions. But we do know that the vine—once its fruits have been miraculously transformed by sugar-crazed microorganisms —can provide us with the perfect accompaniments to the ocean’s stone-shaped aphrodisiac. They are crisp, briny whites, rosés, and sparklers teeming with racy acidity, and they come from places like the Loire Valley, Chablis, the Languedoc, and Liguria. This discounted selection of our six top oyster wines—bright, fresh, delicious, and full of saline minerality—will have you covered whether or not you can make it to this year’s Oyster Bliss celebration. Bivalves, beware!
