Drink pairing tips for Sushi

  • Vinho Verde Rose with your tempura prawn handroll

    A glass of something that the carbonation will cut through heavier flavors of the batter should be what you pair your tempura prawn handroll with. You can’t go wrong pairing your food with a white wine like Vinho Verde Rose.

  • The perfect match for your tuna maki

    Experts recommend pairing a tuna maki with a glass of Albariño, a popular white wine.

  • Enjoy salmon nigiri with Pinot Grigio

    For an elevated experience, pair your salmon nigiri with Pinot Grigio. This combination works particularly well because this white wine doesn't overwhelm the dish.
