My family said this was delicious. I really liked the flavor that the red wine vinegar added to this chowder. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

Delicious and soooo easy! I made this using goat butter and evaporated goat milk instead of the half-and-half and milk due to a cow's milk allergy, and this was amazing! I also added a bit more potato and clams for some more texture. Will definitely be making this again.

Definitely 5 stars. It's so thick and creamy and easy to make. I made it a bit easier by making it all in one pot. I sauteed the veggies in the butter, and then boiled them in the clam broth, then added everything else when the veggies were tender. I will agree..... do NOT omit the red wine vinegar!!! Thanx so much for this recipe!
