WINE / BRAZIL

HISTORY OF WINES IN BRAZIL

Brazil, the largest country in Latin America and considered the fifth largest wine producer in the Southern Hemisphere, has been making wine since the beginning of its colonization, but it was the arrival of Italian immigrants, starting in 1875, that brought importance to the activity.

Over the past fifteen years, the Brazilian wine industry has made a tremendous investment in technological innovation and vineyard management. The result? Excellent quality wines recognized over two thousand international wine awards.

NOWADAYS

Currently, the Brazilian wine regions total 83,700 hectares, divided into six regions: Serra Gaúcha, Campanha, Serra do Sudeste and Campos de Cima da Serra, no Rio Grande do Sul, Planalto Catarinense, in Santa Catarina, and Vale do São Francisco, in the northeast of Brazil.

Today there are over 1,100 wineries around the country, mostly based on small farms (an average of 2 hectares per family). The grape and wine productive chain combines techniques that ensure the quality of their labels, such as manual harvesting and cutting-edge technology in viticulture and winemaking processes. Consequently, Brazil is capable of producing fresh, fruity and balanced wines, very pleasant with moderate alcohol content.
