2013 Pinot Blanc Paired with Seared Scallops

Pinot Blanc 2013 - 150120-233353-5D-23280

We are down to the last 20 cases of our 2013 Pinot Blanc. This wine will not last much longer. We love pairing our Pinot blanc with seared scallops. It’s a match made in heaven!

Seared Scallops


  • 1 to 1 1/4 pounds sea scallops
  • 2 teaspoons unsalted butter
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • sea salt
  • fresh ground black pepper


  • Add the butter and oil to a 12 to 14-inch saute pan on high heat. Salt and pepper the scallops. Once the fat begins to smoke, gently add the scallops, making sure they are not touching each other. Sear the scallops for 1 1/2 minutes on each side. The scallops should have a 1/4-inch golden crust on each side while still being translucent in the center. Serve immediately.
