Drink pairing tips

  • 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.


  • The ideal pairing for porterhouse

    When having porterhouse, experts suggest you pair it with a glass of Old Fashioned, a popular cocktail.

  • Chardonnay and filet mignon with pepper sauce


    If your food palns include Steak, then you should consider helping it along with some white wine. We find that a Chardonnay, with its hits of rich, serves as the best pairing to the dish.

Interesting facts

  • The ideal pairing

    One should always compliment their food with a drink that doesn't take away from the meal. If it’s steak you’re eating, we recommend pairing it with a tea. The tannin-rich flavors of the tea won’t detract from the flavors of your steak.

  • Hungry for prime rib?

    Are you a fan of prime rib? The current record for eating the most prime rib is 23 pounds! Do you love prime rib enough to beat this record?

  • Priceless or overpriced?

    If you have recently won the lottery, or you just happen to have $300 lying around, why not spend it on indulging in the world’s most glamorous, and most expensive, olive wagu beef?
