Experience a Culinary and Winemaking Extravaganza at Brasa New Orleans

**New Orleans, LA** – Brasa, the acclaimed South American steakhouse in downtown New Orleans, is thrilled to announce a special winemaker’s dinner featuring the exquisite wines of Viña Los Chanchitos. This exclusive event will take place on July 17, 2024 and promises an unforgettable evening of exceptional cuisine and fine wine.

Renowned Colombian-born Chef Edgar Caro and co-owner Antonio Mata are the culinary masterminds behind Brasa. Their shared passion for South America’s rich culinary traditions has led to the creation of this vibrant restaurant, which celebrates the asado culture of Colombia, Brazil, and Argentina. Brasa offers an authentic South American dining experience that captures the essence of these diverse culinary landscapes.

The evening will also showcase the outstanding wines of Viña Los Chanchitos, a family-owned boutique organic winery. Known for its commitment to quality over quantity, Viña Los Chanchitos embodies a deep love of family, culinary arts, and winemaking. The winery’s story, however, has roots far from its Colchagua Valley farm, beginning in New Orleans, Louisiana. It was in this vibrant city, synonymous with music, art, food, and drink, that Michael, a native, and Kathryn, a Californian, fell in love and eventually merged their passions to create Viña Los Chanchitos.

Guests will have the unique opportunity to meet and dine with Al DeRose, the talented winemaker of Viña Los Chanchitos. Born and raised in San Jose, Al DeRose joined the family winemaking business with the founding of DeRose Vineyards in 1988. His adventurous spirit led him to central Chile, where he has served as the consulting winemaker at Viña Los Chanchitos since 2020. Nestled in the Santa Ana area of the Colchagua Valley, the winery is perfectly situated for cultivating both white and red grapes comparable to those of the renowned Rhône wine region. Al DeRose’s dedication to organic farming and meticulous grape cultivation has been a driving force behind the winery’s success.

Join Brasa and Viña Los Chanchitos for a night of culinary excellence and wine pairings that highlight the synergy between South American flavors and premium organic wines. This event is not to be missed by food and wine enthusiasts alike.
