Information on the Brazilian market
The population of Brazil has reached 190 million inhabitants in the course of the last year. There is still marked contrast among different Brazilian states and social strata. However, economic prospects anticipate scenarios of financial stability for the coming years, with controlled inflation and a stable exchange rate.
Brazil’s southern region still records the highest wine consumption figures, particularly in the cities of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, which account for about 80% of the country’s total consumption. Other important centers of consumption are the cities of Belo Horizonte, Brasilia, Salvador de Bahia, Fortaleza, Curitiba and Porto Alegre.
