Don’t just take our word for it! This month’s (October) Decanter magazine dedicates a five page spread to Brazil, covering both the country’s established and emerging wine regions, the challenges facing the local industry and a ‘top twelve’ list of wines* to look out for.
Here at Go Brazil we’re delighted to see mention made of the new wineries which have sprung up recently in the state of São Paulo, principally in the upland region which separates it from the neighbouring state of Minas Gerais. The key winery here is Guaspari, a family business which took over a former coffee plantation that lies at approx. 1200m above sea level. Look out for their flagship Syrah (scoring 93 points!) and Sauvignon/Viognier blend, both of which will be available from us here in the UK in early November.
* to underline how well Brazil’s wines are performing, we are super chuffed that Jancis Robinson and Hugh Johnson have chosen to feature the Familia Geisse Nature Terroir 2015, together with Pizzato’s Reserva Alicante Bouschet 2016, at the launch of their latest ‘World Atlas of Wine’ – and both wines are available from Go Brazil.
In short, this latest Decanter article is an excellent introduction to Brazil and its wines.
