The DWS staff have picked some of our favourite pancakes which we’ve paired with some of our favourite wines.
There is definitely a Shrove Tuesday pairing to suit you.


Galette with spinach and blue cheese (vegetarian)
Cantine Colosi Grillo 2022, Sicily, Italy £12.99
A wine that perfectly tells what Sicily is, with the scents of earth burned by the sun and invigorated by the wind: salt, citrus and aromatic herbs, dried straw and hawthorn. This wine is an explosion of flavours, thanks to the bond among freshness, minerality and smoothness. Fragrances of white and tropical fruit prevail. Harmonious, fresh and elegantly soft.

Great balance of flavours, fruitiness and warmth.

Socca Pancakes with Chilli Jam (vegan)
