Hi there! I am having a Sushi dinner party and I was wondering if anyone could recommend some good wine pairings?

I find a food Italian Pinot Grigio goes well with Sushi.

If you can find a good dry white wine....that too will work.

Malbec (as a red) seems to lend itself well to the fresh and unique flavors of Sushi

Unoaked white Burgundy, Gewurztraminer or Pinot Noir. I'm of the opinion that less robust whites taste very limp in the face of sushi. I would probably go with the Gewurz if you are using more than a tiny bit of wasabi.

I prepared Sushi last evening at work and served a Pinot Grigio. It went well. I used halibut, salmon, shrimp and I did a barbequed lake perch done in the syle of eel.

I could probably go along with a fuller Alsatian Pinot Gris but I've never drunk an Italian Pinot Grigio that didn't seem weak and tinny to me in the company of sushi. But different tastes for different people and all that.

I actually prefer to drink beer with sushi most of the time. Chilled sake is of course always something to fall back on.

While I'd rather have a OB or Sapporo I'd have to agree with a nice Gewurztraminer as well.
