Proud of its soccer - as the country that exports more star players in the world - and of Carnival, most popular party in the world, Brazil can have the same feeling towards wine.
The typical climatic diversity of a continental country and the Brazilian creativity, known for the ability to reinvent everything, helped the country to achieve a completely unique grape and wine growing industry.
European tradition, brought to Brazil by thousands of immigrants, coupled with the investment in innovation resulted in wines with unique personality. Each production area developed its local peculiarities, generating labels with their own culture, typicity and features.
In common, they feature the freshness of a young industry, formed by small businesses that make light fruity wines with moderate alcohol content. This style has been discovered and increasingly admired around the world.
Today, the production of fine wines in Brazil totals 10,000 thousand hectares of Vitis vinifera grapes, divided into six main regions. There are approximately 150 wineries producing fine wines around the country. The Brazilian wine industry also comprises approximately 1,100 other wineries, mainly located on small farms (an average of two hectares per family), dedicated to the production of table and handcrafted wines. The area of vineyards covered with table and vitis vinefera varieties in the country amounts to approximately 89,000 hectares located from north to south.
The country has become the fifth largest wine producer in the Southern Hemisphere and it is certainly one of the fastest growing markets around the world.
Labels made in Brazil are cheerful, young, authentic, focused on people who look for a happier life and are eager to have new experiences. That's why Brazilian wines are the face of Brazil.
