In the southernmost section of the country, State of Rio Grande do Sul developed under a heavy influence of its sizable German and Italian immigrant communities. Most travelers know this area for its pristine national parks, cascading rivers, alpine villages, and dramatic canyons blanketed by forests, yet an increasing number of vacations in State of Rio Grande do Sul incorporate nature adventures with tours of outstanding wineries. Long known for its cattle ranches and distinct cowboy culture, the area increasingly rivals its neighbor Argentina as one of South America's top winemaking regions. Sightseeing in State of Rio Grande do Sul leads many visitors to small towns populated by hard-working and fiercely proud Gauchos (cowboys), easily recognized by their traditional dress and wide-brimmed hats.
