Drink pairing tips

  • Sauvignon Blanc and kalua pig


    Food with smoky flavors, like kalua pig, should be paired with a white wine like Sauvignon Blanc if you want the most to be brought out of the flavors of the dish.

  • Go for Albariño with laulau

    To elevate your laulau experience, we recommend some Albariño to go with your dish. This pairing works especially well because this white wine adds bright, refreshing qualities a luau needs.

  • The ideal drink pairing for limu poke

    Knowing what to pair with limu poke can be tricky. It’s worth exploring some beer, particularly a glass of Hefeweizen. This, sweet, beer balances the zesty limu poke.
