Drink pairing tips

  • Chardonnay and falafel


    When considering how to best enjoy your falafel, we would highlight how well a glass of Chardonnay complements the dish as it enhances flavour.


  • The perfect complement to tomato and arugula salad


    When having tomato and arugula salad, experts suggest you pair it with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, a popular white wine.

  • Rosé with your falafel

    When enjoying a falafel dish, it’s recommended you pair it with a glass ofdry Rosé, a pink wine that counterbalances the dense texture of the falafel.
