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.

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.
