Brazilian wines earn, each day, the most prestigious preferences in the international market. However, this reality is not the same in the domestic market. One of the great villains that contributes to the wines not be so prestigious in the national market is the high tax burden that renders Brazilian wines very expensive, making them still a luxury item on supermarket shelves. A vision of how our wines are seen abroad can help make this drink more national and handy to the pocket of Brazilians from all social classes.
