    When considering what goes best with fried chicken, we recommend a glass of Kentucky 75, it truly complements the dish as it cuts the fat of the fried skin.

    Experts recommend pairing a shellfish with a glass of Chardonnay, a popular white wine.

  • Margarita with your grilled burger

    With its sweet flavors, Margarita matches a grilled burger really well because it balances the spice and salt of the burger. You won’t go wrong with this cocktail.

  • Priceless or overpriced?

    In 2011 in Corvallis a hamburger was made that sold for p$5,000.

  • A perfect match: Spanish granache & mac and cheese

    One should always compliment their food with a drink that doesn't take away from the meal. If it’s mac and cheese you’re eating, we recommend pairing it with a Spanish granache. The ripe, fruity sweet flavors of the Spanish granache won’t detract from the flavors of your mac and cheese.
