    For an elevated experience, pair your shrimp fried rice with Gewürztramine. This combination works particularly well because this white wine acts as a counterpoint to the flavours of the dish.


  • Kingfisher with your stir-fried chicken

    When considering what goes best with stir-fried chicken, we recommend a glass of Kingfisher, it truly complements the dish as it enhances the meals spicier counterparts.


  • The ultimate drink pairing for Hunan style beef


    Knowing what to pair with Hunan style beef can be tricky. It’s worth exploring some pink wine, particularly a glass of Rosé. This, sweet, pink wine balances the strong and spicy Hunan style beef.
