Fogo de Chão intros top-tier Vik Chilean wines and dry-aged beef to its menu – and half-price wines on Wednesdays


Fogo de Chão has introduced two new wines from Chile that are not only great deals, they’re also stellar wines. And what’s better than two new red wines? A terrific every-Wednesday discount and dry aged steaks.

The two new wines are from Chile’s Vik Winery, which focuses on organic farming techniques to produce old-world style wines. Vik’s new Fogo de Chão’s offerings are the flagship Vik, a Bordeaux blend on the list for $160 ($40 a glass) and the Milla Calla, a blend of cabernet, cabernet frank and syrah, for $60. Even better: All of Fogo de Chão’s South American wines priced below $100 are offered at half price on Wednesdays, making the Milla Calla a real steal.

Fogo de Chão’s wine buyer told me that all U.S. Fogo de Chão restaurants now stock both wines, and when she tasted them, she knew that these represented not only fantastic, carefully made wines but also terrific values. I agree. (The Vik flagship, in particular, reminds me of another top Chilean wine, Almaviva, which costs nearly double.)

If you’re a fan of dry aged beef, Fogo de Chão’s flagship Legacy West location now ages prime beef and offers a daily cut as an add-on $15 option for those dining on the full churrasco experience. (It’s by request only, and best eaten at the restaurant’s gaucho bar, a dedicated chefs counter overlooking the broilers.) A Fogo de Chão spokesman says the dry aged beef will roll out to four or five of the chain’s 43 locations this year.
