Discover the range of sparkling wines that are a real speciality of Brazil. You’ll find traditional method chardonnay and pinot blends, as well as wines made by charmat method, and fabulous low alcohol sparklers made from Moscato.

 

The ancestors of many of Brazil’s wine producers came from the Prosecco region of Italy: sparkling wine making is in their blood. We invite you to try the wines from Basso, Garibaldi, Campos de Cima, Caves Geisse, Don Giovanni, Salton, Aurora, Miolo and Casa Valduga and be the first to taste the new ‘i heart Brazil’ wine from Copestick Murray.

 

Representatives from the importers of these wines will be on hand to talk to you about the brands they represent: namely, Oakley Wine Agencies, Casa Leal, GoBrazil Wines, Kingsland Wine and Spirits, Bibendum and Stevens Garnier

Grapes: 70% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir

Importer: Go Brazil Wines – Nicholas Corfe: [email protected] – www.gobrazilwines.com

Additional information: This product was created with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes from from the vineyards of the Campos de Cima winery, located in the eastern Campanha region of Rio Grande do Sul. It is the result of a pioneering experience in the production of these grapes in the region. With excellent health and appropriate chemical composition of the grapes, it was produced by the traditional method; a fine, elegant and harmonic sparkling wine that is very typical and, at the same time, has a strong personality. Predominant citrus aromas are mixed with nectar and date, with a slight finish of backyard herbs (rosemary, sage). Pleasant, persistent and harmonic on the palate. Best serving temperature between 8º and 10º C.
