What you'll do

The Wine Experience has been Number 1 on TripAdvisor for 10 years and pioneered Uruguay Wine Tours back in 2011 working with small Uruguay wineries outside Montevideo in the Canelones wine region. We designed this experience for those new to wine and also those who are avid wine lovers. Your local guide will pick you up at your residence in Montevideo and take you to a 4th generation family winery, isolated off the beaten track, where you will taste delicious wines. You will be received and welcomed by a winery expert for a tour to the vineyards followed by a visit to the production area and cellar. You will then taste a variety of wines including the famous Tannat grape. The winery will prepare homemade empanadas, while you taste wines in front of the vineyard. After tasting delicious wines and making new friends you will make your way back to your place of residence with many happy memories!

Where you'll be

You will get to see many old historic burroughs including the Old Town on route to the winery. Besides wine this is very much a cultural and sightseeing experience. The winery in question is 100+ years old, so expect to see some interesting architecture, rustic landscapes and places along the way.

The Winery is excellent and full of character. The local hosts provide a really nice tour and insight and importantly some great samples which they adapted based on our conversations and tastes. The wine is a high standard. The food was nice but not completely heated through. Our driver Nicolas in and out of Montevideo was excellent - a really nice, thoughtful and reliable guy! He also took us to a great local restaurant on the way back! Also highly commend Ryan for his help on our wider trip and recommendations for things to do in Montevideo.

I had a wonderful time with my guide, Matias! He was very knowledgeable about life in Uruguay. The winery we went to was beautiful. They had a great selection of four wines to taste from. The only discrepancy is that the experience states that a selection of both empanadas and cheeses will be provided by the host. The empanadas were delicious, however there was no cheese. My friend went the next day and she said the same thing. Not a big deal, but if it's not provided I wouldn't list it in the experience.

We have visited wine regions all around the world, but the opportunity to travel to Uruguay gave us a chance to experience one of the lesser known wine producers. The surprising thing about the Uruguayan wine culture is how connected its heritage is to viticulture the world over. So much the same and yet different in its own right. Martin was our guide for the trip to the Pizzorno family estate in the Canelones region outside Montevideo. With a history going back over a hundred years, growing 12 varieties of grapes in the old traditions of Italy, this winery presents an insightful, educational experience with samplings of their natural sparkling wine, a luscious sauvignon blanc, two tannat vintages, and a lovely pinot, complemented by house-made chili empanadas. We learned a lot we thought we knew from our Pizzorno guide, Vera. Springtime in this Uruguayan vineyard with the new vines developing was a treat.
