Bento Goncalves

Wine Capital of Brazil

Founded in 1875, the young city of Bento Goncalves boasts a rich recent history and attractions that tastefully complement its surrounding natural features. The cultivated local hills around the main urban center are home to vineyards and wineries, making the town Brazil's "Wine Capital." Meanwhile, an array of modern architecture--from religious buildings to bridges and museums--takes its cue from the peaks and valleys of the municipality's rural areas. As one of the main hubs of Italian immigration to Brazil, many of the cultural attractions in Bento Goncalves focus on its European heritage, the growth of the agricultural industry, and the developing artistic and artisanal impetus in the modern town.
