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: Oeillade noire

Probably originating in the Languedoc, oeillade Noire is known by other names such as olhada, aragnan noir, ulhat, hulliade or croque. This variety should not be confused with Cinsault, which is highly productive, producing up to 5kg per vine, and is particularly noted for its drooping habit and vigour. The black eye is a late bloomer. Oidium, mildew and grey rot are its main enemies. It requires a rather short pruning, coulure and millerandage could harm its development and the grapes it would bear. It prefers a good exposure and reaches maturity around the second half of August. Its bunches are of medium size and its fruits have a great resemblance to those of the Cinsault. They have been eaten fresh at the table for a long time. The wine produced from this variety is quite alcoholic and has a colour similar to that of a cherry. The variety is no longer multiplied and seems to be on the way out.
