The latest edition of Decanter magazine ( October 2018 ) is dedicated to South American wines, which includes – of course – Brazilian wine.
In a feature on sparkling wines Argentine writer Alejandro Iglesias highlights two of his top Brazilian labels: he awards the Cave Geisse Extra Brut 2014* a highly creditable 93 points, while the Campos de Cima Brut 2012 scores 91 points.
Here at Go Brazil we are currently stocking both the above wines – for more information and to purchase, please see here:

Elsewhere in the magazine Brazilian-born Dirceu Vianna Junior MW, South America’s first Master of Wine, has written a thought-provoking article on the current state of wine-making in Brazil.
