Campos de Cima da Serra is a wine region located on the border with Santa Catarina. Here, the vineyards can reach up to 1,100 meters of altitude. 

This region is a hilly area, so the vineyards are located on slopes. For that reason, the constant winds in this area cool the vines, helping to keep them free of diseases. In addition, the combination of moderate temperatures and breezes helps the grapes to have a more intense flavor. 

The region's soils are granitic and clayey. This gives them a high water retention capacity, helping to reduce the need for irrigation in the vineyards. 


Most Planted Red Grape Varieties: Merlot, Pinot Noir

Most Planted White Grape Varieties: Chardonnay

This region produces mainly red and white wines, although quality rosé and sparkling wines can also be found.

Among the most produced red wines we can mention Merlot and Pinot Noir. In the case of Merlot, it has an intermediate acidity profile, medium to high tannin intensity and notes reminiscent of chocolate, cherries or plums. On the other hand, Pinot Noir wine has a dry profile, with medium to high acidity, low tannin intensity and notes that can remind of cherries, raspberries or even mushrooms.

In the case of white wines, the most popular is undoubtedly Chardonnay. This wine has a citric profile, and it is possible to find notes reminiscent of fruits such as yellow apple, lemon, pineapple or even buttery notes.

History of wine

Campos de Serra Gaucha is another of Brazil's sub-regions that has recently gained prominence. Although it was for a long time in the shadow of the Serra Gaucha region, it has had greater recognition since 1981. This was mainly due to 2 events that occurred at the same time in Serra Gaucha:

  • The increase in the price of land.
  • The low availability of land

This allowed regions such as Campanha and Campos de Mina da Serra to acquire greater interest from producers, who saw in these lands a great opportunity to develop wine production. As a result, quality wines began to be produced in Campos de Minas da Serra, a region whose popularity continues to grow to this day.
