On the border of the cities Caxias do Sul and Farroupilha is Vale Trentino, cradle of the Italian immigration in Brazil. By the hands of the Italians, the place embraced its talent for wine and today there are lots of vineyards, since the properties of large producers until small traditional families.
The route through Vale Trentino includes visitation to canteens and wineries of the region. You can taste excellent flavors and buy various wines, juices and derivatives from grapes produced in Vale, meet the planting process, ripening and manufacture of wine, and get in touch with the Italian customs and traditions that still linger in local communities.
In addition, it is possible to listen to stories with the Venetian dialect (a language spoken in an area of Northeastern Italy) and make a historic trip to Primo Slomp Grape and Wine Museum, the first winemaking cooperative of Latin America, founded in 1929.
