ORONO — People in New York City  are being introduced to a wine that is specially blended to pair with Maine’s signature seafood.

A wine producer last summer introduced “Big Claw” white wine in Maine. It is made in California and designed specifically to go with lobster, with a portion of the sales going toward the research and education efforts of the University of Maine’s Lobster Institute.

The wine – with its distinctive label showing a big red lobster claw – is now being introduced to New York City, with a ceremonial first pouring taking place June 14 at Ed’s Lobster Bar. The restaurant will also serve up a five-course lobster dinner that features lobster and corn chowder, lobster ravioli and a lobster roll.
