The place that has become a tourist spot in the city is back for those who want to buy grape in a different way
The landscape of endless vines full of grapes, very few kilometers from the urban area of the city, which became famous in recent years for the owner's sympathy with the sweet grape that he swears to be one of the best around here, is back. The new harvest will be available from Tuesday (21), in Estancia Angélica, located in Três Barras.
The grape canister is an option for those who want to consume fresh fruit. But it is the walk through the region, harvest grape from the foot in the Italian style, eat and take many photos that became an attraction on the property of Celso Cortado, 65 years old, owner who for 10 years abandoned livestock for agriculture.

The niagara grape usually gives there from August to November, but this year started a little earlier. Last year the movement was intense and Celso received many messages on social networks with requests for when the next sale would be. As soon as it announced the date, the news went on to 'pop' into WhatsApp groups.
Given the previous success and the difficulties of a year that has faced not only the coronavirus, but a time that, according to him, "hindered a little production", this year had no increase. The box with 2 kg of grape continues to cost R $ 20,00 and the payment is only in cash. "There does not take very well the internet and in times of covid-19 I can not leave customer queue waiting to pass card", reinforces the owner.
The sale will last about two weeks, then the owner will take a 15-day break and return with sales on the property. "We have a schedule to follow, we have to repodar for the sprouting to go forward," he explains.

Despite announcing that he does not sell wholesale, his Celso says there is no limit on the purchase. "You can buy even the heck, all you want," he jokes.
On the recognition that each year increases, he says proudly. "I'm happy, everyone who works wants to have their work recognized and in recent years this has been a force for us to continue."
In a previous report the owner explained the secret of sweetness that, according to him, is in spoon above ideal. "We already have a known name in the city, people come here sometimes and want it because they want to take it, but it can't, it's not sweet enough yet. And they ask, but as it does not have, look at the so much there?" reproduces Celso.
Who wants to buy the grape, sales will be at the property that is on MS-040, kilometer 5, road that goes to Santa Rita do Pardo. Opening hours are Tuesday to Friday from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm.
