Rio Bravo, “Espumante” from Brazil
We are in in Serra Gaucha in the south of Brazil a region renowned for its excellent wines and natural beauty.
The history of the Mioranza Winery begins in 1964, when the Italian family Mioranza begins with the cultivation of vines in the town Flores da Cunha town.
Achieving excellence in winemaking was the focus of Vinícola Mioranza not only having the best grapes, climate and soil but also relying on the tradition of its ancestors combined with modern processes and equipment for the perfect winemaking.
Over the years, Mioranza underwent several stages of improvement. The grape production is almost entirely in its own vineyards.
