A short guide to pairing wines from La ferme du loup
Most of our wines are lively, almost crunchy, a reflection of our nordicity. They usually go well with buttery, fatty and savory dishes. For a fairer pairing, delicate dishes are to be recommended. Produced from here, they will gladly accompany all the local specialities. Don't hesitate to experiment to get to know our wines, and let us know your favorite pairings!
Sével Doux goes well as an aperitif and remains easily digestible, as it is less sweet than other products in its category. Served at the end of a meal, it goes wonderfully with a low-sugar dessert.
Our sparkling wines benefit from being chilled for two to three hours in the refrigerator. You should take them out ten to twenty minutes before the service.
