  • Anthony Quinn Both in stores as well as on restaurant lists. Yesterday at Cleveland Park Wines & Spirits we poured the RIO/SOL Sao Frasisco dry red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon-Shiraz that we sell for $10.99 a bottle and it sold really well. That's sweet! Love it, the wines is really good just like the SALTON Merlot listed here as well as the SALTON Pinot Noir that is roasted and toasted darker cheery flavors accented with strawberries and some enticing spices, too , $17.99 a bottle on our shelves , as well as THE ' work horse " Tannat, $11.99 that is more fruit-forward and easy to approach immediately with or without a meal : both that sell really well, too. Cheers, great work! TONY 3/20/2014

I took this picture above in a fine restaurant in the town of Bento Goncalves that I went to and enjoyed a fine meal in late June, 2012 with a bottle on the DUNAMIS organic Merlot I believe, or was it a red blend? It was light and fresh and balanced and a perfect foil for what we ate there.

And just today, Monday March 31st, 2014 I am discovering the SUZIN Winery in southern Brazil's highest elevation for grapes and vines : the Sao Joaquim region of Santa Catarina where I am told SUZIN grows the following ... I copied and pasted this , as well as what is above from my Facebook conversations that I am happy to be sharing in my blog format so that more of this might come to light - come to life, and reach a broader audience of those interested in the fine quality of wine that is currently being made in Brazil in the six or so regions where grapes are grown ( with the possibility of up to three harvests in a year in certain regions I am told - definitely two ), but that are sadly not available in many markets outside Brazil yet. Some is available in the United States like the RIO/SOL, SALTON, CASA VALDUGA, MIOLO and  LIDIO CARRARO, DON GUERINO and a couple of others, but there is hardly any talk of any of this yet. I / we hope to change that with posts like these. Join us, let's all " MAKE SOME BIG NOISE " for the excellent wines of Brazil!

I will continue to add to this, it will be a ' work in progress ' of mine. Please fell free to comment here. Let's all be heard here in the United States, in England and China, Germany and all the regions of the world where wine is enjoyed! Cheers, Anthony ( TONY ) Quinn  3/31/2014

  • Rogério Gomes Hi Mr. Anthony Quinn ,
    These wines are made with grapes from the highest vineyards in Brazil, in São Joaquim - Santa Catarina – South Brazil. The vineyards in this region are sited in altitudes varying between 900 and 1.400 meters above sea level. Suzi
    n is a small producer with 7 hectares planted at 1.200 meters above sea level. The cultivars planted are Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc. The wines are fresh, round and very enjoyable.

  • Anthony Quinn Thank you Rogerio, I will share this information on my Facebook as well as in a blog to let more people know that these wines are in fact being made and that they deserve our attention. Tell me more about these vintages? Obregado, bom dia! Anthony ( TONY ) Quinn 3/31/2014

Obregado Rogerio ( Gomes ) para tudos! Let's work closely together here.  TONY
