Drink pairing tips

  • A next-level pairing for Sauvignon Blanc

    Experts often pair seared tuna, papaya salad and lime chutney with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, a popular white wine.

  • Pair ewa agoyin with Grenache

    For an elevated experience, pair your ewa agoyin with Grenache. This combination works particularly well because this red wine complements the sweetness of the ewa with the fruity wine.


Fun facts

    Lagos, Nigeria is the proud home of the annual Lagos Street Food Festival, held every October to celebrate everything that is good about African.
