Drink pairing tips

  • Enjoy falafel with Chardonnay

    To elevate your falafel experience, we recommend some Chardonnay to go with your dish. This pairing works especially well because this white wine enhances flavour.

  • Rosé with your falafel

    When considering how to best enjoy your falafel, we would highlight how well a glass of Rosé complements the dish as it counterbalances the dense texture of the falafel.


  • Sauvignon Blanc and falafel


    If your food palns include Falafel, then you should consider helping it along with some white wine. We find that a Sauvignon Blanc, with its hits of tropical, serves as the best pairing to the dish.
