Drink pairing tips

  • Pair Champagne with fried chicken

    Not sure what sparkling wine to drink with your fried chicken? Try Champagne. The dry flavors will pair nicely with the food and complete the meal.

  • Pale Ale and fried chicken


    When considering what goes best with fried chicken, we recommend a glass of Pale Ale, it truly complements the dish as it cleanses the palate.


  • Go for Tempranillo with fried chicken

    For an elevated experience, pair your fried chicken with Tempranillo. This combination works particularly well because this red wine cuts the fat with its tannins.
