There are fresh and alive wines. And smooth and intense wines. There are typical cheeses and desserts. There are stories, proverbs and traditions. There are songs and accordions.

The lake of Maranhão Dam is beautiful, vast and very peaceful. The margins may be flat cultivation areas, intense forests or rocky cliffs.

On the air there are eagles, herons, and cormorants. On the water, we can see small fishes jumping. We love all this.

Maranhão is here and it's for us!
