The Loire Valley Wine Bureau is hosting an all out Muscadet Month in the city of Seattle. Muscadet, originates from the city of Nantes in the West Coast of the Loire Valley, which has a lot in common with its sister city of Seattle. Both are coastal and known for their shellfish. It only seems fitting to bring the Loire Valley “oyster wine” over to Seattle to match with the bountiful offerings of its local oyster farms. Muscadet is an undisputed perfect pairing for oysters, and will be the feature at 18 Seattle area restaurants from September 15th to October 15th. These establishments include:
- Bastille: 5307 Ballard Avenue NW — Seattle, WA
Le Gourmand + Sambar: 425 NW Market St — Seattle, WA
