Wine Pairing for Crab

We are going to a charity crab feed this weekend in Napa. It is BYOB. Any suggestions on a wine pairing for crab. The crab will be boiled/steamed and accompanied with butter, cocktail sauce, lemon, etc. I was thinking Sauvignon Blanc? Riesling?

Sauvignon Blanc always works for me with fresh crab (local dungeness I assume). St. Supery or Kenwood should be tasty and crisp enough, and won't break the bank.
St. Suprey is my pick.

One of my favorite things to rip into - especially outside in the summer.

so basically, almost any white!


Got that right. One of the few times I barely pay attention to the wine I'm drinking.

I usually do this by steaming (don't boil! - takes a lot of the flavor out) with Olive oil, butter, garlic and fresh parsely. Yum!
