Another GI for Brazil


The Brazilian Instituto Nacional da Propriedade Industrial (INPI) proudly reports the increasingly high-quality of Brazilian wines and sparkling wines.

On April 18th, 2013 the coordinator of INPI’s Geographical Indication (GI), Mr Luiz Cláudio Dupim, handed the corresponding GI certificate to Deunir Argenta, president of the Wine Producers Association of ‘Montes Altos’ (Apromontes). Mr Dupim emphasised the importance of GIs noting that it “adds value to the product, helps to preserve traditions and boost the local economy.”

It is said that Montes Altos’s producers received a helping hand from Embrapa Uva e Vinho, as well as from Embrapa Clima Temperado, the Universidade de Caxias do Sul (UCS) and the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS).
