Welcome to Vale Dos Vinhedos
When connoisseurs debate world-class wine production, Brazil isn’t usually the first country that comes to mind. Discerning palates, however, are starting to rave about the outstanding vintages of southern Brazil. The award-winning sparkling wines, cabernets and chardonnays fermented in the Vale dos Vinhedos are the result of generations of hard work and innovation – particularly by Italian families that immigrated to the region starting in the 1870s – as well as excellent soil and growing conditions. Now, nearly 150 years later, the awards have finally started to roll in. In 2013, the Vale dos Vinhedos was even named one of the year's 10 Best Wine Travel Destinations by Wine Enthusiast magazine. Brazilian wine has arrived.
