Drink pairing tips for Shawarma

  • A next-level match for falafel

    When having falafel, experts suggest you pair it with a glass of Chardonnay, a popular white wine.

  • Rosé with your falafel

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

  • Pair Syrah with ribeye

    When considering what goes best with ribeye, we recommend a glass of Syrah, it truly complements the dish as it provides a counterpoint to the richness of the marbled meat.
