Drink pairing tips

  • Pair Sauvignon Blanc with pork ribs with a barbecue rub

    The acidic flavors in Sauvignon Blanc makes it a great white wine to pair with pork ribs with a barbecue rub.

  • Go for Rosé with grilled turkey burger

    For an elevated experience, pair your grilled turkey burger with Rosé. This combination works particularly well because this pink wine battles the grilled flavours.


  • Pair Pinot Noir with pork

    When considering what goes best with pork, we recommend a glass of Pinot Noir, it truly complements the dish as it highlights the richer flavours of the meat.
