Pairing wine with pancakes can be a great combination. Below are some typical pancake formats with suggested matching wines.
Pancakes with sugar & lemon
If you like your traditional sugar and lemon pancakes, try a lightly sweet wine such as a delicately tangy Muscat to compliment the citrus sweetness.
Pancakes & chocolate
Always a difficult pairing – wine and chocolate – assuming your chocolate has melted or you have chosen a chocolate sauce, a nice big Port is ideal. Try our new Own Label 20 year old Tawny.
Fresh berries with pancakes
Perhaps more of a breakfast suggestion – although we’re not suggesting you drink wine at breakfast time, at least not on a work day… pair with a sparkling rose, like this favourite from Wiston Estate.
Maple/Golden syrup pancakes
The unctuous syrup style of pancake pairs perfectly well with a luxurious and velvety Tokaji.
Other savoury pancakes
Pancakes with smoked salmon
Another pairing for those sparkling wine and champagne lovers. Also worth trying a dry Prosecco.
