Drink pairing tips

  • Take pancake with chocolate sauce to the next level

    When ordering pancake with chocolate sauce, experts suggest pairing it with a glass of Port, a popular red wine.

  • Pair Pinot Blanc with cheese and spinach pancake

    Not sure what white wine to drink with your cheese and spinach pancake? Try Pinot Blanc. The smooth and dry flavors will pair nicely with the food and complete the meal.

  • A great drink pairing for berry pancake

    Finding the ideal drink pairing for berry pancake can be tricky. It’s worth exploring some pink wine, particularly a glass of Rosé. This, sweet, pink wine balances the fresh berry pancake.
