Seafood pasta with white wine

When you are about to prepare a seafood pasta recipe, make sure that you have a dry white wine. We suggest Pinot Grigio, due to its moderate alcohol content. If you like sparkling wine, you can choose Prosecco, a white wine grape variety that tastes sweet and couples well with seafood meals, too.
