Drink pairing tips

  • The best drink pairing for berry pancake

    Finding the ideal drink pairing for berry pancake can be tricky. It’s worth exploring some pink wine, particularly a glass of Rosé. This, sweet, pink wine balances the fresh berry pancake.

  • A next-level pairing for Tokaji

    Experts suggest pairing a apple and cinnamon filled crepe with a glass of Tokaji, a popular dessert wine.


  • Pinot Blanc and cheese and spinach pancake


    A cheese and spinach pancake can be tricky to find a white wine pairing for. We would suggest trying Pinot Blanc. It will pair nicely with the food and complete the meal thanks to its smooth and dry.
