Drink pairing tips

  • A next-level match for soba noodles

    When having soba noodles, experts suggest you pair it with a glass of Sake, a popular rice wine.

  • Pair Wagu beef with Chenin Blanc

    To elevate your Wagu beef experience, we recommend some Chenin Blanc to go with your dish. This pairing works especially well because this white wine fights the fattiness with acidity.
