Bom día. Come with us to CHANDON Brazil, the first wine estate in the country dedicated solely to sparkling wines.
To CHANDON’s pioneers, back in the late 1970’s, Brazil’s enormous size and variety of latitude and topography looked promising. With much of the land lying in the tropics, the answer came in the form of the mountainous south, towards the 30th parallel, in the Serra Gaúcha region, in the state of Rio Grande do Sul.
Our winery and primary vineyard are in the rolling green hills of Garibaldi. Further south in the cooler, drier hilly region of Encruzilhada do Sul is our more recent vineyard, around 250 hectares, planted in 2000.
We believe great wines are made in the vineyard. Winemaking is then a matter of allowing the vineyard to express itself.
CHANDON Brazil is unmistakably a member of the family. It’s just that it has a little carnaval in its heart.
CHANDON RESERVE BRUT
Fresh and elegant. A vibrant, zesty classic sparkling wine. Crisp, fruity and easy to drink. Elegant and fresh aromas with notes of citrus, dried fruits and white flowers.
Our Maison signature.
TOWARDS A SUSTAINABLE AND RESPONSIBLE FUTURE
We consider ourselves custodians, not owners.
Our lands give us our fruit; it is our responsibility to care for them in return. It’s our privilege to be there.
At CHANDON Brazil, our vision for sustainable viticulture is of paramount importance to us. Twenty per cent of the land we work consists of biodiversity reserves. Accordingly, we are a haven for nature, with 190 protected araucaria trees on site and a biodiversity of flora comparable to that seen in the Mata Atlântica coastal forest biome.
We are working on a variety of schemes aimed at caring for our land and environment including, cover-cropping to avoid soil erosion, rencouraging natural predators and biodiversity in the vineyards, and beneficial microbes and organisms such as earthworms in the soils. We crush our pruned branches and reincorporate them into the soil to improve drainage and health.
There is always more to do, and we embrace the challenge. At CHANDON Brazil, we are on a clear path to a greener and more ethical future.
