Rio Grande do Sul (Portuguese pronunciation: [hiw ˈɡɾɐ̃dʒi du suw] ( listen);[2] lit. "Great River o the Sooth") is the soothmaist state in Brazil, an the state wi the fift heichest Human Development Index (HDI) in the kintra.[3]

In this state is locatit the soothmaist ceety in the kintra, Chuí, on the border wi Uruguay. In the region o Bento Gonçalves an Caxias do Sul, the lairgest wine producin center in Brazil, the attraction is Italian gastronomy. Besides the European influence, the gaúchos, or inhabitants o Rio Grande do Sul, strangly cultivate the traditions o the Pampas — region o the border wi Uruguay an Argentinae — such as drinkin mate (kent as chimarrão drunk in special gourd cups), eatin the typical barbecue, kent as churrasco, and the traditional clothes are the bombachas (baggy trousers), buits an lairge hats. Although the majority o the population dresses non-traditionally, there is a widespread value for tradition an cultur, which renders the image o "cultural zealots" sometimes attributed tae the gauchos.
