Wine Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc
On the coast of Maine, in a large Victorian house, 91-year-old Vivian Daly lives alone. Her housekeeper, Terry, is justly famous for her soups and chowders (though she has little interest in cleaning out the attic, which is how a moody teenage girl comes into their lives, and how Orphan Train begins).
Terry’s fish chowder recipe has been a closely guarded secret, but I convinced her to share it here. All it took was the promise of a few bottles of Sutter Home Sauvignon Blanc.
