Drink pairing tips

  • Pair Riesling with banh mi

    Riesling is dry and this makes it a great drink to have alongside your pairing_Dish_name. The pairing_drink_ingredients in the drink play nicely with the pairing_Dish_flavour_profile flavours in the food.

  • A next-level pairing for Prosecco

    Experts recommend pairing a grilled fish steak with a glass of Prosecco, a popular sparkling wine.

  • Pair banh mi with Kabinett

    For an elevated experience, pair your banh mi with Kabinett. This combination works particularly well because this white wine cools the jalapeno with the sweetness of the wine.
