This winery was founded only in 1998 but the Carraro family has been growing grapes for four generations.
Their current plantings are located both in the Vale dos Vinhedos and also in the Terras do Encruzilhada do Sul, part of the more southerly Serra do Sudeste region.
Lidio has struck gold by being selected to provide FIFA’s official wine for the World Cup in 2014.
The winery is just 40 hectares (roughly 40 football pitches) so meeting the demand means they will be sourcing grapes from many other Brazilian vineyards. It could be said that FIFA are mad to have picked a small, family run boutique winery, on the other hand we must applaud them for supporting the small guys!
Lidio Carraro is producing some of the best wines in Brazil, as testified by a host of awards and favourable international trade press. We will certainly be hunting dow the ‘Faces’ range to bring to you.
