Churrasco is a Portuguese and Spanish word for beef or grilled meats. A different cut of meat is the distinction for countries from Europe to Latin American to Africa that serve Churrasco. In Argentina and Brazil, this BBQ was traditionally served on the ranch each night for dinner.
No. 4 : CHEERS
Did you know that we might think about Malbec from Argentina, but its actually from France, and is still used there today in areas like Bordeaux and the Southwest. We love Malbec in the U.S. – its the 4th most popular wine here. This deep purple bottle from Catena offers not only a rich black cherry aroma and taste, but a fantastic value for such a flavorful grill partner.
