Wine, Beer, & Unique Paraguayan Cuisine

The wet subtropical climate did not made it easy for wines to be grown in Paraguay. Paraguay is more of a "beer" country, and is also known for its unique soups.

By the early 1600s, Paraguay's captial, Asuncion, had almost 200 wineries! Soon, however, Peru and Chile dominated the wine trade, and Paraguayan growers switched to tobacco and yerba mate for cash crops. Wine fell out of favor in Paraguay. Nowadays, Paraguay is a "beer country," with the occasional rum made form Paraguayan sugar canes. Paraguayans have a taste for typical South American food such as empanadas and milanesa. Sopa Paraguaya is a unique stew made of corn bread. The national drink is tereré, yerba mate tea, also common in Uruguay and Argentina.
