Drink pairing tips

  • The perfect match for flounder sashimi

    Experts recommend pairing a flounder sashimi with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, a popular white wine.

  • Enjoy soba noodles with Sake

    For an elevated experience, pair your soba noodles with Sake. This combination works particularly well because this rice wine brings out the true flavors of the dish.


  • Chenin Blanc and Wagu beef


    When considering what goes best with Wagu beef, we recommend a glass of Chenin Blanc, it truly complements the dish as it fights the fattiness with acidity.
