The Tannat Wine Experience from Montevideo
From US$149.99
Overview
Tour a small family-run winery outside Montevideo on this intimate guided tour, which includes wine tastings and homemade empanadas. Learn about Tannat wine, considered the national grape of Uruguay, and sample distinct varietals from the 100-year-old vineyard. A professional sommelier guide will help you hone your palette, and round-trip transportation from your hotel in Montevideo ensures a seamless tour experience.
What to Expect
You will be picked up at the Hotel or Port and taken to an Award Winning Family Winery, where you will get to taste a wide variety of wines, including the famous Tannat grape, whilst enjoying either plates of artisanal cheeses and snacks or homemade empanadas.

We focus on 1 winery seeing where we can spend more time focusing on Tannat. This winery is more than 100 years old. You will be guided by a wine expert, who will welcome you like an old friend, and tell you all you need to know, about Uruguay and their exciting Tannat grape. The tour ends with your drop-off in Montevideo.
