[These lobsters know how to drink!]

Lobsterfest. This week we were happy to sponsor Tasting Table’s Third Annual Lobster Rumble Roll in NYC. And let me tell you, Bordeaux wines hit the rumble with our top contenders for summer: white and rosé wines! Here are all the tasting notes on the wine we served throughout the evening:

The lobster roll winner? For the first year – The Clam Shack in Kennebunkport, Maine! Congrats guys! Check out all the photos from the event below, and tell us what was your favorite Lobster joint. And if you’re palate wants more and more lobster, save June 15th – that’s National Lobster Day! We’d like to recommend a few favorites (that also offer an awesome Bordeaux wine list!): BLT Fish Shack (NYC), JCT Kitchen & Bar (Atlanta), The Hungry Cat (Los Angeles), and Waterbar (San Francisco)

We have to say, it was a joy to experience all the best lobster rolls in one venue – but we’re pretty good on lobster for the rest of the year!

Thank you to the amazing staff working the Bordeaux booth – especially Wine Buffs April Bloom and Mollie Battenhouse. And of course all the lobster restaurants that participated and Tasting Table for having us! Maybe a lamb chop rumble in the future?! What’s the next food competition you would like to see?
