Tour Details

Overview

Escape Montevideo for a morning or afternoon of wine tasting! One of the largest producers of wine in South America, Uruguay is known for its red wines made from tannat grapes. You’ll sample these wines, plus many others, at two different wineries. During private tours of the wineries and 10 total tastings, you’ll learn about the country’s winemaking history and significance from a knowledgeable guide.

Know More about this tour

Your Uruguay wine-tasting tour begins as you are picked up from your Montevideo hotel in a car or minivan and driven to your first stop of the day.

Enjoy sample tastings of tannat, a red wine grape that makes rich, bold wine. Learn about the winery’s long history of winemaking -- a family operation that has taken the winemakers to France and back -- as you tour the property with your guide, who is knowledgeable about Uruguay’s wine industry. You’ll then be walked through the wine-tasting process before enjoying five tastings of the winery’s varietals. Light snacks such as cheese, crackers, nuts and grapes will accompany your tasting.

Then, head to your second winery, a family-owned winery that produces varietals like merlot, chardonnay and Albariño (a type of white grape). Take a tour of the facilities, originally built in 1942 in the style of a French estate, and learn about the winemaking process, and then enjoy another five tastings as you admire gorgeous pastoral views of the grapevines.

No need to worry about consuming too much wine, as you’ll be driven right back to your Montevideo hotel at the end of your tour!

  • If in Uruguay with a half-day to spare, I strongly encourage you to hop on this tour. It is a great way to get out of the city for a few hours and explore several working wineries. You end up with an excellent guide, some gracious hosts 11th and 4th generation owners, and a fun, small crew of others in your group! Great price for all you get to see - and some excellent wine to match!

  • This tour is a must do if you find yourself in Uruguay. The experience of touring 100+ year old wineries is absolutely astounding. Ryan (the tour guide) uses his amazing personality as well as his knowledge of both wine and Uruguay to make this a memory that you won and #39;t soon forget .

  • We had an amazing time from the moment Ryan picked us up - we learned so much about the history of wine making in Uruguay. It was capped off with an amazing visit to Bodegas Carrau. They've been making wine there for 250 years. We met the owner and winemaker, toured the cellar and facilities and tasted everything from Rose, to blends to their signature varietal, Tannat. On the way back to Montevideo, Ryan shared restaurant recommendations and tips for making the most of our visit to Uruguay. He even helped us make reservations at a few special spots. We had a wonderful experience, appreciate his generosity and give him the highest recommendation. If you choose one tour in Montevideo, we recommend this one. Thank you Ryan!

  • Wow! If you only take one tour in Montevideo take this one. I have been on many wine tours around the world and learned the most on this one. Thank you Ryan!
