Brazilian Wine Experience!

Leave the starched table cloths and starchy attitudes of the traditional wine establishment behind as Marcela de Genaro – trained sommelier and Eat Rio guide – takes you on a fascinating journey into Brazilian wine.

Over the course of 3 hours, you’ll taste Marcela’s hand-picked selection of Brazilian wines. Prepare your palette for a unique experience – at times unconventional, but well thought out and always delicious!

And you won’t just be drinking – the wines are accompanied by delicious Brazilian dishes, each carefully designed to harmonise perfectly with whatever’s in your glass at the time.

The event takes place in one of two wonderful locations: the historic neighbourhood of Saúde, just a stone’s throw from Pedra do Sal (commonly known as the birthplace of samba), or beautiful, bohemian Santa Teresa.


Marcela de Genaro is a young sommelier with a passion for vibrant, bold, low intervention (natural) wines; a journalist who changed careers when she fell in love with the world of wine. Her ethos is to simplify this complex wine universe – to leave aside the jargon and the conventions, to bring wonderful wines to the people!

…and her wines

The exact selection of wines served during the Eat Rio Wine Experience will change every time, but you can be sure that they’ll be hand-picked by Marcela to give you a taste of the best of Brazil. And you can expect a few surprises thrown in for good measure!
