Drink pairing tips

  • The ideal pairing for chicken yakitori

    When having chicken yakitori, experts suggest you pair it with a glass of Assyrtiko, a popular white wine.

  • Sake and soba noodles


    When considering how to best enjoy your soba noodles, we would highlight how well a glass of Sake complements the dish as it brings out the true flavors of the dish.


  • Enjoy Wagu beef with Chenin Blanc

    For an elevated experience, pair your Wagu beef with Chenin Blanc. This combination works particularly well because this white wine fights the fattiness with acidity.
