Campo das Vertentes • Minas Gerais
Campo das Vertentes is located in the heart of Minas Gerais state, approximately 200km south of the capital city of Belo Horizonte. The region gained its name, meaning literally “watershed fields,” due to its location between two important water basins in Brazil. Because of the fertile soils and the abundance of water, agriculture arrived early in the region following the first settlers who came in search of precious metals. The coffee plant adapted perfectly to this area and production can be traced back to 1860. More recently, the rich coffee tradition of Campo das Vertentes, as well as the unique landscape and microclimate of the region, are being recognized by a new geographical indication.
