Salton is the granddaddy of Brazil's wine industry. The winery is over 100-years-old and produces some 165,000 cases of wine, much of which is rather impressive sparkling wine. No knock on sparkling wine, but they are not the best for revealing the terroir and potential of a region. Leaving those aside for the moment, it is worth noting that Salton produces an impressive array of white and red wines as well.
The style here is a bit difficult to pin down since a range of wines is produced, but the best wines do share a richness, albeit one that is distinctly modern in feel. In general, the wines are very high quality and nicely blend modern winemaking with the terroir that Brazilian wines are capable of expressing.
