Famigla Valduga’s wine industry vocation came to life in the middle of Vale dos Vinhedos, which was called Via Leopoldina over a century ago. We were moved by the desire to prosper and to take from the soil just enough to live with dignity. Respecting the terroir and understanding that each strand of grape develops differently are the roots that sustain the development of our great history. A relentless search for the true identity of each plot of land, studying them in detail, motivates us to seek the best results. Our understanding that a wine’s soul is linked to climate, soil, topography, and ongoing wind changes made us create the Terroir line of products. We appreciate the potential of each varietal cultivated in the most relevant wine-producing regions of the state of Rio Grande do Sul.
