    Serra do Geral

    by pepples46 Updated Feb 4, 2006

    1 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    North of Porto Alegre is the Serra do Geral, a range of Mountains and Hills, populated mainly by the descendants of german and italien Immigrants.
    the Germans settled in RGS from 1824-1859, when times where tough in their Homeland, they spread out on the flater lowlands, establishing small farming communities, around Nova Petropolis..still in these days strong elements of german origins

    the Italians arrived 1875 -1915 and settled more in the hilly parts around Caixias do Sul, being from the Hills of Veneto and Trentino, they adapted well and specialised in Wine Production. Caixias do Sul became the administrative and industrial Center.but the smaller Towns ..like Bento Concalves and Garibaldi are the Region of great brasilian Wine production.
