Petit Futé's opinion on VINHA MARIA CHAVES

Vintage plate 2020

Can we make a little revolution with good wine? This question was answered on the island of Fogo. The project started with an idea by Ottavio Fasano, Capuchin father: thanks to funds donated by Italian families, he planted 23 hectares of tropical vines in Fogo that produce very rich grapes. Then built a 2,000 m² wine cellar for the production of wines. He was able to call on experts who trained local technicians who now work both in the vineyard and in the "Chai". The initial production of Vinha Maria Chaves was 65,000 bottles of typical white, rosé and red wine. A small reality, the result of a great challenge: producing quality wines at the equator and developing the agricultural potential of the island of Fogo. This project has trained Cape Verdean partners and all the profits generated by the sales of Vinha Maria Chaves wines will be used to finance initiatives of social utility, such as garden schools on several Cape Verdean islands, the Fogo regional hospital and the house for young mothers in Santa Cruz, on the island of Santiago. The results show that poverty can be overcome by the dignity of work, with initial support, and that wealth is found in quality. His white wine "Santa Luzia" and his reserve red wine "Pico do Fogo" won two gold medals at the world competition for extreme wines in 2018 in Valle d'Aosta, Italy.
