Wine Pairings:

We preface all of our wine pairing suggestions by letting you know that it’s really a matter of personal taste. While we do offer our opinions and why we selected a specific varietal, there is no right or wrong answer when pairing a wine with your dinner.


This Pan Fried Halloumi recipe goes great with a chilled French Chardonnay. I prefer the French Chardonnay since they are unoaked and crisp. The minerality of the wine and the flavors of the tomatoes and cheese are the perfect accompaniment! Follow the link to our wine review site to find our favorite Chardonnay
