We are Salton

We are restless, curious, obstinate, passionate. Explorers driven by the pleasure of discovering. Discovering new people, new attitudes and ideas. That which makes us to think differently. Discovering places and paths, lands and cultures. Everything that broadens our horizons. Discovering what was not even thought about. What invents the future.
This attitude is what makes us more open to possibilities, more willing to continue the journey, better prepared to always do better. It is a past heritage from generation to generation, a belief that was born with us. And it continues every day more alive in everything we think and do. In everything we are.
Our histories are made of achievements.
Our history is made of discoveries.

WHO WE ARE

The Familia Salton has a modern approach, with wines appealing to adventurous consumers all over the world. Their expertise in producing sparkling wines (currently n. 1 in Brazil) is linked to the Veneto region from where the Salton family originated.
With a strong vision of the future, and respect for its heritage and the resilience of its people for more than a century, the company continues to invest in the well-being of its young and dynamic extended family, the sustainability of the land and the state-of-the-art winery. These strong pillars allow the family company to respond to the challenges of today’s modern wine business with flexibility and vision.
On the same latitude as South Africa’s Cape and Western Australia, two of the most prestigious New World wine regions, Salton has always believed in the potential for Brazil to produce world class wines and is amongst the first to take them to the international stage. This pioneering spirit is the legacy their ancestors gave to the family and is proudly defended by the 4th generation of Salton.
