The city, is filled with creative energy and has become an important center of fashion, music, and arts. It’s also the distribution center for all the gold, manganese and gemstones mined in Minas Gerais. Our guest speaker, Ricardo Vianna, President and CEO of Vianna Jóias, will guide us through the fascinating world of exquisite Brazilian gems and gold that, since the 18c. have been attracting explorers and dealers to the region. Discover the secrets of cachaça, Brazil’s national spirit with expert Danielle Perugini, who will also present a tasting and teach how to make a great caipirinha.
