Lidio Carraro is a family-owned Brazilian winery founded by descendants of Italian immigrants devoted to the viticulture tradition for over 5 generations.
Inspired by the search for identity and excellence in Brazilian wine and committed to producing only World-class wines, Lidio Carraro entered the market by breaking paradigms. With a Purist Philosophy based on integrity and the capturing of the wine’s essence, the entire Lidio Carraro process is carried out with minimum interference and maximum respect for the natural expression of the grapes and its origin’s terroir.
The winery, throughout its path, has stood out for its unique quality and has been recognized for its youth, boldness and vanguard.
“We carry in our blood, hands and heart the passion for making the best wines”.
A project born from Lidio’s old dream which was awakened amongst wine glasses and deep conversations around the table. This involved the entire family, sparking interest in making wines with the purpose of transcending the ideal of excellence contained in each bottle: sharing and awakening life amongst people, with Passion and Authenticity.
