REGIONS


Currently, the production of fine wines in Brazil totals 10,000 hectares of Vitis vinifera grapes, divided into six main regions: Serra Gaúcha, Campanha, Serra do Sudeste and Campos de Cima da Serra, in Rio Grande do Sul, Planalto Catarinense, in Santa Catarina, and Vale do São Francisco, in northeastern Brazil. 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 grape and wine industry combines techniques to ensure the quality of their labels, including manual harvest, and leading-edge technology in viticulture and winemaking processes. Under these conditions, Brazil can develop fresh, fruity and balanced wines with moderate alcohol content that are very pleasant to drink.
