To Casa Nova, Bahia
Distance: ~ 517 miles or 832 km

The initiative of “new irrigation” and “deviation of the river course” for irrigation purposes, comes from observing the way Californian wines are produced, and taking advantage of the similar weather, soil and temperature between the two countries, try to replicate in Brazil the already well-established North American success.
