Maryland Style Crab Cake Recipe and Wine Pairing

Crab Cake Gruner-Veltliner Pairing

One of my favorite dishes to make due to it’s versatility as an appetizer or meal are crab cakes.  This crab cake recipe is not only delicious, but can work for many occasions as a simple but beautiful addition to any menu.

Along with any savory meal, you must have an amazing wine that pairs well and appeals to your palate.  While creating this recipe, we found that it pairs wonderfully with our 2015 Grüner Veltliner.  If you are looking for an amazing, easy to make, and versatile meal to put together, you are really going to enjoy this recipe.
