Drink pairing tips

  • The ultimate drink pairing for meat empanadas


    Finding the ideal drink pairing for meat empanadas can be tricky. It’s worth exploring some white wine, particularly a glass of Torrontes. This, intense acidity and a light body, white wine balances the hot meat empanadas.

  • Malbec and asado


    When considering how to best enjoy your asado, we would highlight how well a glass of Malbec complements the dish as it rinses the palate for the next bite.


  • Pair Pinot Noir with Patagonian lamb

    Pinot Noir, which hails from Patagonia, complements Patagonian lamb incredibly well. We would highly recommend the red wine as a pairing.

Fun facts

  • Overpriced, much?

    In 2019 in Tokyo a bluefin tuna was made that sold for p$3,082,610.

  • The ideal pairing

    Experts recommend pairing steak with tea, complementing the fatty taste of the food with the tannin-rich flavors of the drink.

  • The original burrito

    The burrito was only thought up in 1900s! We wonder what people ever did without some good burrito in their lives...
