Part Tres: It’s Wine O’Clock at Fogo De Chao

We welcome you to the third installment of Meat Sweats – a tale of two hungry girls, Haley and Alli, who can’t get enough meat!

Part three of our steak saga at Fogo de Chão was accompanied by some “pour” decisions. In a recent press release, Fogo announced it had “partnered with VIK Winery, a holistic Chilean vineyard creating world-class wines, to offer its award-winning and best in category wines at Fogo de Chão locations nationwide.”  I mean, WINE wouldn’t they? Nothing pairs better with a freshly grilled assortment than a good glass of red wine.

While we always have a blast [and sweats] at Fogo, we were particularly impressed with Vik’s “Vik” and “Milla Calla.” The steaks were high. Upon sipping, our spirits were even higher. The Vik pairs perfectly with the tender juiciness of the hot-off-the-grill meat. The wine has a delightful bouquet and is balanced in taste. We would highly recommend this pairing on a crisp fall day. Head over to Fogo and enjoy this pleasant pairing now!

It’s wine o’clock folks!
Time to wine down after a long day…
Where there’s wine, there’s a way.
A little pre-meal (or some say salad bar) before the onslaught of juicy meats.
Come to mamas!
YUCA(n’t) touch this! It’s all ours.
Everytime we come to Fogo, we are pleasantly reminded of the incredible sides you get with your meal. Potatoes, yuca fries, plantains, and pao de queijo!
Green for go, and the games begin!
MEATing expectations, and then some more. So we will keep the green side flipped over!
“A steak pun is a rare medium well done…” – some meme. But so true.
Creme you even brulee how beautiful this is??? Ok, maybe that was a failed pun…
