We may have gotten the last Wine Experience event for a while. Ryan Hamilton was able to move our event from a dinner to a lunch event as the hotel it was being held at was closing due to COVID-19! We moved our bus departure from Montevideo up by 3 hours to meet Ryan in Punta del Este. It all worked out even better than dinner would have, as there wouldn't have been a sunset because the clouds moved in while we were enjoying great wines, and wonderful foods, and a great conversation with Ryan. He is a consummate host and sommelier, and we benefited from his extensive experience in the hospitality and wine industries. We truly hope that he is able to offer his Experiences when Uruguay and other countries permit international travel again , because a Ryan Hamilton Wine Experience is well worth the money and not to be missed!

Out visit to Narbona winery was the highlight of our time in Punta. Ryan has access to this winery even though it’s closed, so we had a private tour of the beautiful grounds then a wine tasting in the bar. We tried four lovely wines, with exceptionally generous pours, paired with delicious cheeses and meats. Ryan knows his stuff, and is a pleasure to hang out with! Completely recommend this experience if you’re in Punta.

I booked 2 excursions with Ryan for both Uruguay Port stops during our cruise. Each day was a completely different & wonderful experience. Great wines, personal touches. I wish I could have done more tours with him!
