PIZZATO Vinhas e Vinhos is the legacy of a 100+ year-old grape growing in Brazil. Located at the Vale dos Vinhedos, Bento Gonçalves, in the state of Rio Grande do Sol, southern Brazil, PIZZATO is owned by the Plínio Pizzato family. Plínio Pizzato is the grandson of Antonio Pizzato, an Italian immigrant who came to Bento Gonçalves in 1875 from the Veneto region of Italy and brought with him the proud winegrowing tradition.

With a solid experience in grape-growing, the family established the winery  in 1999 with the objective of making world class estate grown and bottled wines from their own vineyards.

Since its first ever made wine, a very successful Merlot that helped to fix this red varietal as the one with the best results in Brazil, the company is dedicated to make exclusively premium fine wines under its 2 brands, PIZZATO and FAUSTO.

The family owns 45 hectares (111 acres) of prime vineyards located in two regions, both within the so-called Serra Gaú Read more »
