Drink pairing tips for Seafood

  • Pair tempura prawn handroll with Vinho Verde Rose

    To elevate your tempura prawn handroll experience, we recommend some Vinho Verde Rose to go with your dish. This pairing works especially well because this white wine the carbonation will cut through heavier flavors of the batter.

  • Pair Rueda with fish and chips

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

  • Take battered hake to the next level

    Experts often pair battered hake with a glass of Cava, a popular sparkling wine.
