Drink pairing tips

  • Chardonnay with your falafel

    When considering how to best enjoy your falafel, we would highlight how well a glass of Chardonnay complements the dish as it 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.

  • Go for Rosé with falafel

    For an elevated experience, pair your falafel with Rosé. This combination works particularly well because this pink wine counterbalances the dense texture of the falafel.
