Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We're so happy we did this tour! I had been wanting to taste wine from the Tennat grape. We were greeted with a glass of wine when we arrived at Castillo Viejo. Then we walked among the vines and tasted different grape varieties. This was followed by a tour of the production facility. After that, we went to the wine cellar for a luncheon with about 5 different wine pairings. This is a fabulous excursion for any wine lover!

This was one of the best planned tours we’ve done anywhere in the world. The organizer, Ryan, reached out via WhatsApp weeks in advance and was kind enough to coordinate the best way to pick us up and provided tons of recommendations for Uruguay. Our guide on the day of the tour, Miguel, was incredibly kind and fluent in Spanish, Portuguese, and English. We had a great time with him at an amazing winery with an experience just for us. Their food was also amazing. We can’t recommend this enough!

Ryan and Javier were great and Alejandra at the winery was very kind, showed us a lot and answered so many questions. The tasting was an incredible experience - the ambience, the wine, the music it was all great! Also, very grateful to Ryan for adding me as a solo passenger to the cruise ship group and for the many suggestions on places to see and restaurants to check out in Montevideo - it’s been a wonderful visit and I can’t wait to come back to sunny Uruguay!

My dad and I had a great day with Miguel in Montevideo at Casa Viejo. We were paired with two fun Brits and thoroughly enjoyed wine tasting, a 4 course lunch and lots of fun and laughter. Miguel is very engaging and went out of his way to make sure we all had a great day. I would love to come back and do another tour. Highly recommend.

The tour was amazing! Our guide, Ryan, was the best! We learned everything about wines while visiting a lovely vineyard. We tasted several kinds of wines and cheeses in a private room and took many pictures. Just perfect!

We had a great tasting experience with Ryan. He took us to Ana amazing local establishment that had a restaurant and made much of their own food in addition to the wine. He was welcomed like an old friend at the place, and we had a great time. He also paired my daughter and me with a fun couple from Brazil, and we all had a great time. Can’t recommend it enough. Thanks

My husband and I took the Montevideo wine tour and luncheon as a shore excursion at the start of our cruise around South America. Our guide Miguel was informative and accommodating going above and beyond to make our tour memorable. Miguel drove us to Castillo Viejo winery where we were hosted by the wine maker. She gave us a personal tour of the working winery and surrounding grounds with Miguel serving as translator. We then were served a delicious meal with paired Castillo Viejo wines paired. We have done many wine tours and this tour was a fabulous introduction to Uruguay wines. Highly recommend.

We are wine enthusiasts from California but didn’t know much about wines from Uruguay. So booking an independent shore excursion during our one-day cruise stop in Montevideo gave us just the introduction we needed.

Miguel/Mike was our guide and driver. We were courteously asked in advance if we would mind if another woman joined us. Since we were only two, we were happy to oblige.

Miguel’s family was a yeast supplier to the wine industry in Uruguay, so he seems to know everyone and could answer pretty much any question we had en route to the winery. His English is excellent and he helped translate when needed at the winery tour.

The winemaker for the small, family run winery greeted us, provided some sample bottled aromas to experience, and gave us a tour of their production facility. As we have taken a lot of winery tours in the States, we were quite interested in how different some of the equipment is, especially the large cement fermenters. On the tour, employees were bottling and packing one of their wines. We were offered the chance to assist in bottling by putting on the foils, and we even were allowed to hand place a label on their most limited production wine. How fun!

The wine-paired lunch was filling and good. We were surprised at how many different varietals they made for a small winery. It was our first time tasting Tannat dominant wines, as we have only had that as a small part of blends before. We purchased a bottle of Pinot Noir Rose to enjoy chilled on the ship since it’s the hot summer season right now.

Since we only had one short day in port, we did not have the opportunity to walk around the city of Montevideo. So Miguel drove by some of the city highlights on the way back to the ship and we stopped to take a few pictures. All in all, the kind of excellent introduction to Uruguay wines we were looking for and a very enjoyable day.
