Drink pairing tips

  • The perfect complement to fattoush


    When having fattoush, experts suggest you pair it with a glass of Vina Esmeralda, a popular white wine.

  • The ultimate drink pairing for Israeli salad


    Finding the ideal drink pairing for Israeli salad can be tricky. It’s worth exploring some white wine, particularly a glass of Albariño. This, acidic, white wine balances the citrus Israeli salad.
