Built where Cecconello windmill used to work, the house is an example of an acculturation process. Erva-mate, a very common plant in the region, was known and used as a drink by the Indians (bugres), who called it "Caá-i". The immigrant, besides consuming it, started a large-scale production. In the place, you can see this process and in the retail you can try chimarrão (the typical drink made with erva-mate) and buy products related to it.
