With French cuisine and culture woven through it, Vietnamese is easier than most South-East Asian cuisines to pair with wine. While the bolder flavours of fish sauce and chilli call for some thoughtful matches – and a refreshing beer is always a safe option – we hope you’ll enjoy this selection of 8 European and Australian wines chosen to match the dishes in this month’s menus. Each box includes a bottle of each of the following wines.

Please call Roberto Dessanti on 0420 904 255 with any questions.


Majolini Franciacorta Brut Rosé DOCG NV

A Vietnamese 333 beer is a great accompaniment to fresh rice paper rolls (and we’re sending you a couple), but I prefer a glass of sparkling Franciacorta, like the organic brut rosé from Majolini not least because its pretty colour echoes that of the pink prawns in the rolls!

Borgo Magredo Sauvignon Friuli Grave DOC 2019

This aromatic sauvignon blanc from Borgo Magredo harmonizes beautifully with the marinade in Mark’s Five-spice Quail, while the balanced acid cuts through the richness really well.

White Fences Sauvignon Blanc 2019

You’ll need a fruity wine to match the sweetness of our Caramelized Clay Pot Salmon and this sauvignon blanc from Mudgee works perfectly with its floral notes, fruit-forward palate and dry finish.

Bosca Secco Asti DOCG NV

Our classic Vietnamese Coconut Crème Caramel is especially delicious with a glass of this dry sparkling wine from Piedmont, its creamy bead echoes the creamy custard perfectly.

Borgo Magredo 2019 Pinot Grigio Friuli Grave DOC

The pinot grigio from Borgo Magredo is a fuller-bodied style than many with good fruit on the nose and palate (think ripe apples and pears) and a pleasant bitter note at the end, which complements the herbs and nuoc mam cham in our bánh xeo so well.

Rocca 2018 Montepulciano d’Abruzzo DOC

I love a soft red wine with Vietnam’s lemon-cured beef, something with enough body to meet the sirloin but light enough not to overpower the herbs, the Montepulciano d’Abruzzo from Rocca works a treat!

Vigna del Cristo 2018 Lambrusco di Sorbara DOC

Vigna del Cristo, a pale pink Lambrusco from Emilia-Romagna, is an excellent match for the herbs and spices in our stir-fried pork with lemongrass, chilli & garlic.

Pfeiffer Seriously Pink fortified

This pink fortified wine from Rutherglen in Victoria (Australia’s home of fortifieds) is a great match, both in colour and flavour, for the watermelon jelly in our Vietnamese-inspired fruit salad. It’s an intriguing blend of touriga, tempranillo, shiraz and gewürztraminer.

We made the pot-sticker dumplings and bang bang chicken – once again both exceeded our expectations. My husband keeps saying it’s better ordering this than going out to restaurants as the recipes and food quality are amazing.

I loved the Fresh & Easy Chicken – simple instructions, only a few ingredients and the time factor absolutely spot on. Then came the highlight, the taste, no compromise on the enjoyment of that meal! For the time poor Fresh & Easy hits the mark indeed.

Thank you for stocking our pantry with such authentic ingredients and quality produce ... I’ve so enjoyed picking fresh leaves from the herb pots and loved listening to the chef's playlist while cooking. We really like the flexibility of cooking over a couple of days and changing the order we cook the dishes in when we want to.

I am absolutely loving these boxes! There are ingredients I have never worked with before so having the confidence to try something new is so much fun! The recipes are just amazing and the notes on what can be prep’d beforehand are a great help too. Thank you so much.

Thanks so much for the Fresh & Easy Meal, it was excellent. We regularly get another meal kit delivery – your offering is vastly superior and a similar price, so big ticks.

I'm a competent cook whose learned so much from the Recipes+Videos Packs. The recipes are yummy and Roberta’s video guidance offers so many little tips to improve flavour and organise the flow of preparation. I enjoy her warmth, sense of humour, and ability to giggle at herself when she occasionally messes up.
