After 44 years of experimenting with grapes in his garden vineyard, a laboratory located in a the courtyard of his Curridabat home, Italian agronomist based in Costa Rica was able to harvest 4 hybrids with features to produce a competitive wine purely of national origin.

The wine would be the first of tropical wines in the world with designation of origin.

Overall, Vidor concluded that in a few years it is possible to make local wine with domestic grapes, not imported, competitive and with territorial characteristics.

For Vidor, his results open new hope for Costa Rica in the field of wine production.

Vidor explains that the hybrids have been grown in adverse conditions to verify their resistance to tropical conditions, a process that has proved successful to date.

The agronomist describes the flavour as “forest berries and aromatic vinous”.

The next step for this lover of grapes and wine is continue improving productivity, pruning techniques and maintenance of the fruit to ensure quality versus quantity, among other things.
