Sashimi

Sashimi is all about balance. It is best appreciated with a vibrant white wine, a fresh citrus character that cuts through the richness of the fish and adds depth to the dish. Try it with NV Vicente Gandia Baron De Valls Ice Rosado to add a touch of sweetness to the fish’s briny taste.

Tuna is an easy fish to pair with your favourite red, white or rosé wine. Ever wondered what to pair with tuna? Pair it with our favourite, NV Vicente Gandia Cero Coma Tinto recommended from wine experts. An alcohol-free red that will surprise you.

Mackerel

A mouthwatering mackerel dish is just as good with a savory wine that complements the fish well. Make sure to pair your fish with a white wine like 2021 Corvezzo Pinot Grigio Delle Venezie Organic, which has an expressive bouquet of white flowers and a touch of white peach on the palate.

Unagi

While unagi (grilled eel) is not the most common sushi ingredient, this smoky red wine pairs perfectly with the sweet and savory flavors of grilled eel. The richness of 2021 La Zorra La Zorrita mingles with the smoky tannins from the grilled eel to create a unique contrast, and both complement each other perfectly.

Crab

The rich buttery, creamy texture of crab meat deserves a wine that’s full-bodied with layers of flavour—and NV Corvezzo Ribolla Gialla Venezia Giulia Organic is just the right match.

Tempura

The lightness and crispiness of Tempura, with its deep-fried goodness, pairs well with NV Vicente Gandia Sandara Chardonnay Sake or a very light-bodied white wine.

Uni

Uni (sea urchin) is one of the most luxurious and sensual ingredients on the market. It’s creamy texture, salty and sweet flavors, and smooth texture make it an irresistible treat. This goes perfectly with 2016 Torello Corpinnat 225 Brut Nature Gran Reserva.
