Drink pairing tips

  • A great drink pairing for strawberry ice cream

    Knowing what to pair with strawberry ice cream can be tricky. It’s worth exploring some pink wine, particularly a glass of Rosé. This, off-dry, pink wine balances the fruit strawberry ice cream.

  • Take chocolate ice cream to the next level

    Experts suggest pairing a chocolate ice cream with a glass of Brachetto d'Acqui, a popular red wine.


  • Champagne with your vanilla bean ice cream

    A vanilla bean ice cream can be tricky to find a sparkling wine pairing for. We would suggest trying Champagne. It will pair nicely with the food and complete the meal thanks to its semi-sweet.
