Drink pairing tips for Sushi

  • A next-level match for Negitoro roll

    Experts recommend pairing a Negitoro roll with a glass of Sapporo Lager, a popular beer.

  • Pair Vinho Verde Rose with tempura prawn handroll

    If your food palns include Sushi, then you should consider helping it along with some white wine. We find that a Vinho Verde Rose, with its hits of green fruit, serves as the best pairing to the dish.

  • Gruner Veltliner and rainbow roll


    When considering what goes best with rainbow roll, we recommend a glass of Gruner Veltliner, it truly complements the dish as it enhances the taste of sushi.
