Drink pairing tips

  • Chardonnay with your falafel

    Not sure what white wine to drink with your falafel? Try Chardonnay. The oaked flavors will pair nicely with the food and complete the meal.

  • The perfect match for your tomato salad

    Experts recommend pairing a tomato salad with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, a popular white wine.

  • Pair falafel with Rosé

    To elevate your falafel experience, we recommend some Rosé to go with your dish. This pairing works especially well because this pink wine counterbalances the dense texture of the falafel.
