Lying high in the hills 6 kilometres from Sao Paulo, the city of Sao Roque is renowned for its wines. The Roteiro do Vinho is a tourist route that enables you to visit 1 of the local wineries that were established here by Italian and Portuguese immigrants in the 19th century.
Hiring a car in Sao Roque is the easiest way to explore the surrounding vineyards and visit Ski Mountain Park, South America's largest artificial ski park. With paintball, archery and tree climbs as well as skiing, plus spectacular views over Sao Roque, it is an essential part of any itinerary.
Also nearby, Carambei Falls Park offers picturesque waterfalls and unspoiled forest that is home to a wide variety of wildlife. The park hosts the annual Sao Roque Wine Festival, as well as musical and theatrical performances, a museum and a restaurant.
The Brasital is a 19th century textile factory complex that now houses a cultural centre, museum and performance space. The grounds also have a nature trail called the Water Way.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
