Drink pairing tips

  • Go for Grenache with ewa agoyin

    To elevate your ewa agoyin experience, we recommend some Grenache to go with your dish. This pairing works especially well because this red wine complements the sweetness of the ewa with the fruity wine.

  • Pair Sauvignon Blanc with seared tuna, papaya salad and lime chutney

    When considering what goes best with seared tuna, papaya salad and lime chutney, we recommend a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, it truly complements the dish as it highlights the flavour of the wine.


  • Chardonnay and hake and shellfish


    Food with rich flavors, like hake and shellfish, should be paired with a white wine like Chardonnay if you want the most to be brought out of the flavors of the dish.
