A Mina-Jolimont-Cachaça Flor do Vale
The Mine (A Mina) is a park also called "Parque Tomasini", which looks exactly as a mine where rocks and geodes are found. It goes further under the ground level. There one can see a great variety of wonderful rocks, minerals, and geodes. There is also a large store where you may buy all kinds of things made of stones. Outside the mine, we have a beautiful view of a lake and a typical local food restaurant.
Jolimont Winery is a wine producer where you can taste different kinds of wine, as well as grape juices. It was idealized by a French man and his family since 1948.
Cachaça is a typical alcoholic Brazillian drink made from sugarcane. The place also has a beautiful view, where you can also see some little waterfalls. Nature and fresh air are all around it. Don't forget to try also the fig brandy. Most people find it delicious.
Although I won't be able to try the alcoholic drinks because I am driving, as I enjoy nature very much, it would be my pleasure to take you there.
First we'll go to the mine, in Gramado city, then to its store, and afterward, we'll have lunch outside in a restaurant by the lake.
During the afternoon we'll visit both the winery and the cachaça places in Canela city.
After that, I'll take you to the place where you're staying, so that you can change and rest for a while. I'll pick you up again at the same place around 8 pm.
The dinner place will be accordingly to your taste. Some restaurants have German, Italian, or typical local shows included, depending on the days of your visit.
