Drink pairing tips

  • A next-level pairing for Pinot Blanc

    Experts suggest pairing a cheese and spinach pancake with a glass of Pinot Blanc, a popular white wine.


  • The ideal drink pairing for berry pancake

    Knowing what to pair with 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.

  • Tokaji and apple and cinnamon filled crepe


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

Interesting facts
