Sul Americana Wine




By Krunch Kretschmar,
Int'l Grand Confrerie Sommelier

South American wine!!  We can’t get enough  those great Malbecs from Chile, Cabs and Malbec blends from Argentina.

But wait!! Something is missing. Brazil is serving up some of the most superb wines in the world!

If you haven’t  tasted a Brazilian wine,  lift up your glass. These wines have a marvelous  French flavor without the European price tag.

Miolo is the largest winery in Brazil.  Its wines are produced in French oak barrels.  The sparkling wine is hand turned then stored in a cave for over a year. Sample one of Miolo’s Pinot Noir’s and you’ll think it was from Burgundy.

So,  the next time you have a taste for South American wine, remember the BIG GUY down there. BRAZIL is serving up a carnival for your taste buds.
