Drink pairing tips for Seafood

  • Pair Vinho Verde Rose with tempura prawn handroll

    When considering how to best enjoy your tempura prawn handroll, we would highlight how well a glass of Vinho Verde Rose complements the dish as it the carbonation will cut through heavier flavors of the batter.


  • Take fish and chips to the next level

    When ordering fish and chips, experts suggest pairing it with a glass of pear cider, a popular cider.

  • Rueda with your fish and chips

    If your food palns include Fish and chips, then you should consider helping it along with some white wine. We find that a Rueda, with its hits of citrus, serves as the best pairing to the dish.

Factoids about Seafood

  • The go-to pairing

    One should always compliment their food with a drink that doesn't take away from the meal. If it’s sushi you’re eating, we recommend pairing it with a green tea. The delicate, earthy flavor flavors of the green tea won’t detract from the flavors of your sushi.

  • History lesson

    Do you know what food came to be in 1929 in The United States? None other than the delicious lobster roll.

  • Overpriced, much?

    If you have recently won the lottery, or you just happen to have $3,082,610 lying around, why not spend it on indulging in the world’s most glamorous, and most expensive, bluefin tuna?
