CLASSIC CHEESEBURGER WITH TOMATO RELISH

A massive favourite with all-round appeal, the beloved cheeseburger is best enjoyed with a juicy mid weight wine with no rough edges.

Pair with: Grenache and GSM’s, Barbera or Merlot.

MUSHROOM & CHORIZO BURGER WITH BLUE CHEESE SAUCE

Spicy and earthy with savoury appeal, this style of burger is best enjoyed with light to medium weight reds with juicy, mouth-watering acidity.

Pair with: Pinot Noir – or Nero d’Avola or Grenache.

LAMB BURGERS WITH TZATZIKI AND ONION JAM 

Lamb and Cabernet are well known partners, but the Mediterranean addition of tzatziki means that varieties native to that part of the world will also be ideal.

Pair with: Cabernet and blends, Tempranillo or Sangiovese.

SATAY CHICKEN BURGER WITH ASIAN SLAW

Deliciously flavoursome with beautiful mild spice and the ‘kiss of the grill’, the Malaysian deliciousness on show in this burger makes it ideal with a plush white style.

Pair with: Chardonnay, Verdelho or Fiano.

SPICY RARE TUNA BURGER WITH ROCKET & WASABI AIOLI

The Japanese influence here is best enjoyed with the same styles you’d enjoy with sushi – namely, aromatic dry whites with zippy acidity.

Pair with: Riesling, Pinot Grigio or Gruner Veltliner.

POTATO AND BEAN VEGGIE BURGERS WITH HUMMUS

Fresh, healthy, textural and colourful, enjoy this new-age burger with fresh and vibrant wines as they have similar crunchy textural appeal.

Pair with: Rosé, Sauvignon Blanc or Vermentino.
