Jorjao Malbec

You’ve never met a man more passionate about sharing the “Gaucho Way” than Jorge Ongarato. One of Fogo’s founders, this Brazilian gaucho has a true love for bringing people together with fine food, lush wines, and the rich culture of Southern Brazil. And he would be delighted if you enjoyed this Malbec with old friends, new acquaintances or even Jorge himself. But call him Jorjão (Portuguese for “Big George”). All of his friends do.
