With careful attention and dedication, Lidio Carraro Boutique Winery produces world-class wines that are the true expression and essence of the soils.
Lidio Carraro, a Leading Winery in Brazil
In 1875, the Carraro Family from Veneto, Italy, arrived Brazil and settled in Bento Gonçalves in the Rio Grande do Sul. They started cultivating grapes and producing wines for special family events and celebrations. In the 1970s, the estate became a pioneer leader of the Merlot variety in the Serra Gaúcha. The full-fledged modern winery was built in 2001 by Lidio Carraro, with only seven hectares of vineyards. Today, the family owns over 200 hectares, located in the finest wine zones of Brazil.

Some vineyards hold Cabernet Franc, Touriga Nacional, Chardonnay, Riesling Itálico, Teroldego, Moscato, Tempranillo, and Moscato Bianco. Their high-quality red, white, rosé, and sparkling wines help preserve the family’s conventional wine production methods in the region.
