    When considering what goes best with shrimp fried rice, we recommend a glass of Gewürztramine, it truly complements the dish as it acts as a counterpoint to the flavours of the dish.


  • A next-level pairing for Pineau d'Aunis

    Experts recommend pairing a apricot chutney-topped lamb chops with a glass of Pineau d'Aunis, a popular red wine.

  • Go for Kingfisher with stir-fried chicken

    To elevate your stir-fried chicken experience, we recommend some Kingfisher to go with your dish. This pairing works especially well because this beer enhances the meals spicier counterparts.
