Drink pairing tips

  • A great drink pairing for prawn curry

    Knowing what to pair with prawn curry can be tricky. It’s worth exploring some cold drink, particularly a glass of saffron lassi. This, sweet, cold drink balances the spicy prawn curry.

  • Viognier with your shellfish curry

    If your food palns include Curry, then you should consider helping it along with some white wine. We find that a Viognier, with its hits of peach-and-apricot, serves as the best pairing to the dish.

  • The ideal pairing for green sauce palak paneer

    When having green sauce palak paneer, experts suggest you pair it with a glass of Chenin Blanc, a popular white wine.
