The visit to Vinícola Araucária is a great opportunity to get to know the excellent wines produced there and that are not found elsewhere (yet), as the production is small and very good! The visit includes a guided tour on spot that includes the outside area, production and winetasting. A delicious lunch harmonized with wines is also included.
Tour times change depending on the day of the week. Ask us for the available options for the chosen date.
Vinícola Araucária is located in São José dos Pinhais, just an hour away from Curitiba. The landscape is remarkable, surrounded by Araucaria trees and the way until there is very picturesque, with several small rural properties.
Pioneer in Paraná Estate in the integration of wine production and grapes raising, Vinícola Araucária has improved its production since 2007 and produces today red, white and sparkling wines. The “wine geography” in Brazil changed because of that and today the parallel 25°S is considered also a wine production and grape raising area.
The property produces 8 grapes varieties from Europe: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Viognier, Merlot, Nebbiolo and Toroldego. The winery produces two kinds of sparkling wines (Poty Brut and Poty Demi Sec), a white wine (Angustifólia Chardonnay) and three kinds of red wine (Angustifólia Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Gralha Azul Merlot). The produced wine has high quality. Do not expect to taste "sweet" wine or grape juice.
The constructions of the winery are beautiful and in harmony with the nature and local art. All labels and decoration remind the nature and paintings by the local artist Poty Lazzarotto.
You will visit the outside area, where the grapes raise, the production area and will have a wine tasting.
The place is wonderful, surrounded by huge araucária trees, woods, fruit trees and a beautiful lake. The vineyard changes its colors every season.
After the visit, free time (1 hour) to go along the different trails in the property or have lunch (optional - not included in the tour). The restaurant opens Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays. In case you are a group of at least 10 people, an optional lunch can be reserved.
