Discovering the wine region of Rio Grande do Sul

Rio Grande do Sul is Brazil's most prolific wine-producing state. It is located in the very South of the country along the Uruguayan and Argentinian borders. The wine regions of Serra Gaucha, Campanha and Vale do Vinhedos can be found in this Part of the country. Soft, light red wines from a range of varieties such as Grape/pinot">Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Tannat are made here.

Rich white wines from Chardonnay and Viognier are also produced. However, it is the fresh, Fruity Sparkling wines made here in the Italian spumante style that have captured the most attention. Today, Rio Grande do Sul is responsible for around 90 percent of Brazilian wine production, although only a small amount of this is quality wine made from Vitis vinifera grape varieties. Vitis labrusca and Hybrid grape varieties such as Isabella and Concord are better suited to the terroir here and still make up the majority of plantings.

The state lies some 650 kilometers (400 miles) southwest of the city of Sao Paulo and 300km (200 miles) North of the Uruguayan capital of Montevideo. Rio Grande do Sul (which means "great river of the south") is essentially a continuation of the pampas of Argentina and Uruguay. These are fertile lowlands that consist mainly of low, rolling hills and plains. In the more northern part of the state, the landscapes rise into low mountain ranges that extend northward into the bordering state, Santa Catarina.

Discover the grape variety: Dureza

This grape variety is said to originate in the north of the Ardèche department, but we find it very similar to Duras from the Gaillac region (Tarn). D.N.A. analyses have shown that Syrah is related to Mondeuse Blanche (mother) and Dureza (father). Italian and Swiss researchers have also suggested that Dureza, which is now endangered, is a brother or sister of the Italian variety Teroldego and that Pinot Noir is a close relative. Dureza is registered in the Official Catalogue of wine grape varieties, list A1. - Synonym: duré or duret (for all the synonyms of the grape varieties, click here!).
