The Monte Alto Farm has its origin in 1830, when Francisco Ribeiro do Valle arrived in the region coming from São João Del Rei. At that time, he took over the Jacuba Farm, which later became known as Monte Alto Farm. The property was inherited by his son, the Baron of Guaxupé. He was a member of the coffee aristocracy at the time, so his descendants kept the tradition of coffee cultivation.

Currently, the farm is run by Carlos Henrique Ribeiro do Valle and Marina Scognamiglio Ribeiro do Valle and their children. Thus, the 7th generation of the family remains committed to the noble task of growing high quality coffees, with dedication and professionalism.
