Drink pairing tips for Donuts

  • Go for Merlot with chocolate frosted donut

    To elevate your chocolate frosted donut experience, we recommend some Merlot to go with your dish. This pairing works especially well because this red wine stands up to the chocolate flavour.

  • The perfect complement to glazed donut


    Experts recommend pairing a glazed donut with a glass of Champagne, a popular sparkling wine.

  • Grenache Rosé and strawberry donut


    When considering how to best enjoy your strawberry donut, we would highlight how well a glass of Grenache Rosé complements the dish as it does not compete with the sweeetness of the frosting.
