Drink pairing tips

  • Pair Chardonnay with falafel

    When considering how to best enjoy your falafel, we would highlight how well a glass of Chardonnay complements the dish as it enhances flavour.


  • Enjoy falafel with Rosé

    For an elevated experience, pair your falafel with Rosé. This combination works particularly well because this pink wine counterbalances the dense texture of the falafel.


  • The perfect complement to falafel


    When ordering falafel, experts suggest pairing it with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, a popular white wine.
