Good Wine Paired with Fantastic Food at El Gaucho

The dining room staff at El Gaucho Argentine Grill recently studied the careful pairing of food & wine, prepared to make educated recommendations to their guests. The pairing was conducted by Arion Wine Company instructor Govert vd Hout and focused on six popular selections by Kendall Jackson, all Vintner’s Reserve, the Riesling, the Sauvignon Blanc, the Chardonnay, the Pino Noir and the Cabernet Sauvignon.

Vd Hout picked three quality whites and three excellent reds to pair different food types with, relying on the restaurant waiters for tasting notes and feedback.

Orion Wine Company, he says, appreciates the increased interest in wine and often hosts tastings and seminars to further the knowledge of wine pairing in Aruba’s premier eateries.

Pictured here the slow and infinitely pleasant process of uncorking and then sipping selections which perfectly complement El Gaucho’s fine seafood dishes and steak specialties.

Patrons have been enjoying unforgettable evenings savoring the best and biggest steaks at Aruba’s first Argentinean restaurant, opened 33 years ago, in the heart of town.

The friendly staff has been serving the finest Argentinean meats grilled to patron’s preferences to the music of strolling guitarists. Some of the most popular dishes include world-famous Gaucho steak – 16 ounces of tender, juicy Argentinean beef, or the award-winning rib-eye, T-bone, Argentinean mixed grill, rack of lamb, and local seafood recipes. Kids are invited to pick from a special menu, and retired to the game room, once they are done eating. Open Monday to Saturday 11:30am to 11pm and Sunday from 5pm to 11pm.
