Meeting the Brazilian wine families and the wine tasting was fun. Unfortunately the train ride added little value to the trip, and we saw it as using time that we wished we spent on other attractions. There is virtually no sightseeing possible from the train,...More

Very cheerful train trip where you get to know the local history, of the italian settlement in the region, with lots of folk music, dancing with traditional clothings and wine drinking.

Get back to the old days when the steam train was the main way to go from Bento Gonçalves and Carlos Barbosa. You'd better have your tickets in advance! As soon as you get the train station, you can have red or white local wines....More

It is a good ride on a vapor train. Before departure you can drink red wine, at first, as much as you can. On the middle of the trip there is another stop, where grape juice and sparkling wine is served. Along the journey there...More

Maria fumaca is a one way train ride Carlos barbosa to bento Goncalves or reverse. Interesting old steam engine uses wood. Music and dance take place on platform and in train. No English offered but translations in brochure. Very touristy but charming.
