PRODUCER
The Valduga family emigrated from Italy to Brazil in 1875 and since then has been producing wine: first for their own consumption, then in bulk, and now as one of the country’s leading producers of premium bottled wine. Despite the growth of the business, the family remains involved in every aspect of the production, even winery design. As Brazil starts to make waves on the export market, Casa Valduga is one of the pioneering producers setting the pace.

VINEYARD
Grapes were grown in Valduga’s own vineyards in the Campanha region, which borders Uruguay. This is Brazil’s oldest vineyard region, as well as its lowest-lying, at 210 metres above sea level; soils are granite and limestone. The grapes were hand-harvested and then underwent a further selection in the winery.

WINERY
The grapes were destemmed, crushed and macerated for a short period of time. Fermentation was carried out at around 25oC in stainless steel tanks. The wine was kept in second-use French oak for eight months and aged in bottle for another year before release.
