Description

Campanha Gaúcha, on the border between Brazil and Uruguay, has the potential to become one of the greatest Brazilian wine regions. Characterised by a long dry period from the flowering to the harvest, which is ideal for the cultivation of vines and grape ripening. Its topography consists of gentle rolling prairies, a factor that helps the use of machinery and the implementation of different techniques in the vineyard.
The grapes grown in this region are characterised by high alcohol content due to its excellent thermal amplitude, with plenty sunlight and dry climate, which favours the development of the vine and the ideal ripening of the grapes.

In 2010, Vinícola Salton acquired an area of 450 hectares in this region for growing varieties for the production of still and sparkling wines. The varieties include Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Gamay, Marselan, Merlot, Pinot Grigio, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc,Tannat and Teroldego.
