• ViniBrasil

In 2002 Vinibrasil project is born. Located in the Vale do São Francisco, in the State of Bahia, northeast of Brazil and with the Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cão, Tanat and Malbec grape varieties the challenge relied on the viticulture, because you need top quality grapes to produce top quality wines.

On this assumption, a protocol was established with the Agronomy Institute of Lisbon to accompany the investigation and set the standards for this innovative project. In fact, this project goes against everything that we normally take for granted wen thinking about wine production: the region (northeast Brazil), the climate (semi-arid) and the latitude (Parallel 8). As Janis Robinson mentioned this wine is not of the New World but of a “New Latitude”.

The wines produced there are known as Rio Sol, Paralelo 8 and Vinha Maria. They are marked by the specific “terroir” but crafted with international standards and unquestionable quality.
