Drink pairing tips

  • Go for Gewürztramine with shrimp fried rice

    To elevate your shrimp fried rice experience, we recommend some Gewürztramine to go with your dish. This pairing works especially well because this white wine acts as a counterpoint to the flavours of the dish.

  • A great drink pairing for stir-fried chicken

    Finding the ideal drink pairing for stir-fried chicken can be tricky. It’s worth exploring some beer, particularly a glass of Kingfisher. This, dry, beer balances the spicy stir-fried chicken.

  • A next-level match for banh mi

    Experts suggest pairing a banh mi with a glass of Riesling, a popular white wine.
