Drink pairing tips

  • Enjoy shrimp fried rice with Gewürztramine

    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.

  • Riesling with your duck noodle soup

    If your food palns include Asian, then you should consider helping it along with some white wine. We find that a Riesling, with its hits of fruit, serves as the best pairing to the dish.

  • The best drink pairing for Hunan style beef

    Finding the ideal drink pairing for Hunan style beef can be tricky. It’s worth exploring some pink wine, particularly a glass of Rosé. This, sweet, pink wine balances the strong and spicy Hunan style beef.

Factoids

  • Once upon a time

    The next time you bite into a deliciousnoodle remember to thank China who are responsible for this tasty culinary invention.

  • The go-to pairing

    The classic drink in Korea is soju. It's known for its clear, slightly-sweet distilled spirit flavours.

  • Worth the big bucks

    The most expensive Vietnamese coffee costs a whopping$80! Would you be willing to pay$80 for a fancy kopi luwak?
