  • A great drink pairing for vegetable soup

    Finding the ideal drink pairing for vegetable soup can be tricky. It’s worth exploring some white wine, particularly a glass of Pinot Grigio. This, dry, white wine balances the creamy vegetable soup.

  • The ideal pairing for fish soup

    When ordering fish soup, experts suggest pairing it with a glass of White Burgundy, a popular white wine.

  • Soave and green soup


    Not sure what white wine to drink with your green soup? Try Soave. The dry flavors will pair nicely with the food and complete the meal.
