The farm reached new heights of quality after the decision to invest in modern farming technology in 2000.

THE STORY OF THE PRODUCER
Since 1927, generations of the Patre family have dedicated their lives to farming. This family, which promotes engaged agriculture, has always placed ecology at the forefront of its work.
They have been innovators in investing in modern agriculture since the early 2000s and are constantly looking for improvements. This is why they invest in new equipment and in 2019 they acquired an ECOpulper which saves about 65% of water.
In addition to the excellent environmental conditions of the farm, Ratnagairi Estate also follows strict quality standards.
The Catuai variety is a cross between the highly productive Mundo Novo and the compact Caturra, developed by the Instituto Agronomico (IAC) of the State of Sao Paulo in Campinas, Brazil. It is a very productive plant compared to Bourbon, especially because of its small size, which allows for a high planting density.
