Villa's Cabernet

When I post about wine here at The Villa-Lobos Magazine I either add the picture above, which really captures Villa's bon vivant persona, or mention that I used to work in the wine industry.

Back in those olden days, there were no easily available Brazilian wines, but the industry seems to have made some real strides lately. The Casa Valduga winery has a very impressive website; I'd love to get my hands (and corkscrew) on a bottle of this!

Thanks to this blog post for the head's-up on this.


  1. You may also want to try PIZZATO Wines from State of Rio Grande do Sul, southern Brazil. PIZZATO Wines are available in the U.S., including at www.RioJoes.com.

  2. Thanks Stepan. It's good to know that you can buy Brazilian wines north of the border.
