Drink pairing tips

  • A next-level match for prawn dumpling

    Experts recommend pairing a prawn dumpling with a glass of jasmine tea, a popular tea.

  • Blanc de Blanc with your dim sum

    A dim sum can be tricky to find a sparkling wine pairing for. We would suggest trying Blanc de Blanc. It will pair nicely with the food and complete the meal thanks to its sweet.

  • A great drink pairing for pork in sticky soy glaze

    Knowing what to pair with pork in sticky soy glaze can be tricky. It’s worth exploring some white wine, particularly a glass of Riesling. This, off-dry, white wine balances the sweet and tangy pork in sticky soy glaze.
