We will set off at 10 am to a farm dating from the end of the 18th century, listed as a National Heritage site as it contains an extensive mansion and several stone walls built by enslaved people. Owner welcomes us to tell us the details of the architecture, as well as the history of the farm and all the cultural influences it has housed since its construction. This chat is accompanied by a brunch that aims to value regional culture, considering not only the ingredients from the farm but dishes with indigenous, African and Portuguese influence recorded by the family since the Gold Cycle in Goiás. Among them are the Brevidades (a cake made with cassava starch, eggs and sugar), the Senzala cake (made with hominy and baked in a banana leaf) and the Pau-a-pique (a variation of beiju with coconut milk).
In the afternoon we will have the opportunity to bathe in one of the waterfalls in the region.
Free dinner and rest.
Let’s enjoy the delicious room at this hotel and have breakfast a little later. We will leave late in the morning to discover the Pyrenees Route where we will experience two incredible gastronomic moments. Our first stop will be at a winery, where we will have a winemaking experience in the high-altitude Cerrado. Our walk through the vineyard will be highly informative as we will be accompanied by the farm’s technicians. After a delicious lunch served amidst the greenery, we will rest under the shade of trees.
The second visit will be to a dairy farm whose owners are Swiss-Brazilian. We will taste his art with cheeses like Sbrinz, Brie, Gruyère and other surprises. Return to the hotel in the late afternoon and rest.
