Drink pairing tips

  • Go for Sake with soba noodles

    For an elevated experience, pair your soba noodles with Sake. This combination works particularly well because this rice wine brings out the true flavors of the dish.


  • Chenin Blanc with your Wagu beef

    When considering how to best enjoy your Wagu beef, we would highlight how well a glass of Chenin Blanc complements the dish as it fights the fattiness with acidity.

    Experts recommend pairing a flounder sashimi with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, a popular white wine.
