Drink pairing tips

  • Rosé with your falafel

    When considering what goes best with falafel, we recommend a glass of Rosé, it truly complements the dish as it counterbalances the dense texture of the falafel.


  • Go for Chardonnay with falafel

    For an elevated experience, pair your falafel with Chardonnay. This combination works particularly well because this white wine enhances flavour.


  • Pair Sauvignon Blanc with falafel

    If your food palns include Falafel, then you should consider helping it along with some white wine. We find that a Sauvignon Blanc, with its hits of tropical, serves as the best pairing to the dish.
