CICAVI - International Congress of Cachaça and Wine


CICAVI is a cultural, social, technical and economic event that takes place in parallel with the SÃO PAULO INTERNATIONAL WINE TRADE FAIR and CACHAÇA TRADE FAIR. Its objective is to disseminate andestablish technological, social, agronomic knowledge, production aspects, marketing, distribution and service between the components of the wine and cachaça production chain.


The theme of this year's congress will be:

Diversity of Liquor and Wine. Two drinks that bring with them a diverse universe that can be seen across different regions, different styles, different production processes. Which result in different aromas and flavors. But all with their own characteristics that shouldto be respected, publicized and, above all, treated equally.

That's why we open this space so that we can reflect, study and discuss the subject, putting all the questions on the table and  joining forces and reinforcements so that together we can reach a common denominator

Our spaces for lectures, workshops and master classes during fairs are open for this moment of reflection and discussion.
