The history of the Miolo Winery
The history of the Miolo Winery began in 1897 when Giuseppe Miolo landed in Brazil. Coming from Italy he settled in Lot 43, in the Vale dos Vinhedos, Bento Gonçalves, where he planted the first vineyards.
After a century of work in viticulture in the Serra Gaúcha region, the third generation of the family in Brazil founded the Miolo Winery in 1989. The first wine of the Miolo brand to be marketed was a Reserve Merlot 1990 vintage, made from the grapes from the Vale dos Vinhedos region, now a Denomination of Origin Vale dos Vinhedos (DOVV). After years of investments, a lot of hard work and recognized quality, Miolo became the main wine group in Brazil. It is one of the main exporters of Brazilian wines and is among the main producers of sparkling wines in the country.
The philosophy of the group is to explore the Brazilian terroir and show the world the potential of Brazilian regions for the production of quality wines and sparkling wines. For this, the group has four projects in four different Brazilian wine regions: Vale dos Vinhedos (Rio Grande do Sul), Campanha Meridional (Rio Grande do Sul), Campanha Central (Rio Grande do Sul) and Vale do São Francisco (Bahia).
