Drink pairing tips

  • Chardonnay with your falafel

    Experts recommend pairing falafel with a glass of oaked Chardonnay, a white wine that enhances flavour.

  • Pair Rosé with falafel

    When considering what goes best with falafel, we recommend a glass of Rosé, it truly complements the dish as it counterbalances the dense texture of the falafel.


  • A next-level match for rabbit with sausage

    When having rabbit with sausage, experts suggest you pair it with a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon, a popular red wine.
