Drink pairing tips

  • Chardonnay with your falafel

    When considering what goes best with falafel, we recommend a glass of Chardonnay, it truly complements the dish as it enhances flavour.


  • Pair Rosé with falafel

    falafel, goes very well with a glass of dry Rosé, a pink winethat counterbalances the dense texture of the falafel.

  • The perfect match for your falafel

    Experts suggest pairing a falafel with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, a popular white wine.
