Casa Perini is a family-owned and operated winery in the mountainous Serra Gaucha in southern Brazil. The family has grown grapes since 1929 and founded the winery in 1970. It is recognized among the top in Brazil for making high-quality wines. The Italian Immigrants Giuseppe and Antonio Perini arrived in Brazil in 1876, carrying with them the love for making wine. They settled in Serra Gaúcha, and named the area Vale Trentino (to remind about their home). They started to cultivate the grapes and produce wines in a very artisanal way. The region where the winery is located is a very particular area of Brazil. It has an altitude of around 600 to 800 meters above sea level, and the well-divided seasons with cold winters and hot summers allied with the altitude help to cultivate the vines and produce excellent wines.
With the passage of time, the new generations of the family improved the business and in 1970 the winery was officially founded by Mr. Benildo Perini, which is still in charge for the business. Casa Perini specialty is the production of Moscato grapes, and the Casa Perini Moscatel is considering the 5th Best Wine of the World by WAWWJ (Words Association of Wine Writers and Journalists). Among the portfolio, you will find different styles of Moscato wines, from sweet bubbly wine to dry still wine, all made with Moscato. The production of sparkling wines is the highlight of the winery. In terms of reds, the Merlot is definitely a wine to try, and you will also find interesting wines such as Marselan (French grape born from the crossing of Grenache Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon) and Tannat (which adapted very well in the South of Brazil).
