In this scenario, the proposal of this study presents, with the objective of analyzing the relationship between Slow Food and enogastronomic tourism in the region of Slow Food Conviviality First Italian Colony in the Serra Gaúcha - Brazil. For the development of the research proposal, triangulation between theoretical concepts related to the Short Food Supply Chain approach, enogastronomic tourism and the Slow Food movement. The Slow Food movement, the Serra Gaúcha environment and the tourism segments developed in the region, evidenced the shortening of the chain, characterizing itself as a Short Food Supply Chain. Finally, it is possible to expand the studies related to the Short Food Supply Chain theory and tourism activity, or to explore the relationship between the Slow Food movement and local development.
