  • A next-level match for berry pancake

    Experts often pair berry pancake with a glass of Rosé, a popular pink wine.

    A cheese and spinach pancake can be tricky to find a white wine pairing for. We would suggest trying Pinot Blanc. It will pair nicely with the food and complete the meal thanks to its smooth and dry.
