We almost walked by here, but we are so glad we didn't. The tasting is amazing and the service is about as personable as you can get. The wines provided were spot on and the homemade lamb empanadas were AMAZING.

We found this amazing place at the end of our day trip to Colonia del Sacramento and we are so glad we did!

The tasting is amazing! The wines were great and the food was awsome... I'll never forget the handmade lamb empanadas! If you can get teh table in the cute backyard, go for it, it's so tranquile and beautiful.

We then bought some of the wine we tasted and I regret not byuing more!

And despite what she thinks, Carolina, the owner speaks English very well!

Not to miss when visiting Colonia del Sacramento !!!

We did the full tasting with accompanying food as well as the dessert wine option, the wines were excellent, food was plentiful and the staff were great providing tasting notes and pairing suggestions in English and Spanish. In total the tasting took about an hour and it was the best hour of our day in Colonia, I highly recommend!

I'll echo the praise here. We came over to Colonia for a day trip and stopped in around lunchtime so scope La Vineria de Colonia. We weren't up for a wine tasting just yet but the staff were super helpful in recommending restaurants, sights and beaches nearby to get the most out of our day. We returned in the evening a few hours before our ferry was due to depart and enjoyed a wine tasting paired with delicious local cheeses, meats and fruits and yes, the amazing lamb empanadas, in their lovely garden out back. The staff were again so lovely and knowledgable, talking us through the different wines and characteristics of Uruguayan wine.

A great, relaxing way to round of a beautiful day in Colonia!

It has been a couple of months since our visit to Colonia, Uruguay and I can not get it out of my mind! The town, both the newer part and the UNESCO historico barrio both have a certain type of authentic charm that has made such an impression on me. We stumbled upon this very charming wine shop while wondering through the streets on our golf cart. Luckily we set up an informal winetasting for later that afternoon and we happily returned to what turned out to be our favorite place, evening and wine on our entire trip to Buenos Aires and Colonia combined! Both the hosts and the shop are lovely and yes charming. We tried 3 wines along with a fruit/cheese plate and then followed up with lamb empanadas. While we went to B.A. with the idea of finding our favorite Malbec, we came home to Chicago having doscovered our favorite wines were a Tannat Reserva 2011 from Bodega boutique ElLegado and Pinot Noir blanc de noir Chardonnay 2011! When opening one of our Tannat Reserva 2011 at one of our dinners at home, my husband remarked "I wonder if the wine will really taste as good as we thought it was in uruguay OR was it the ambiance at La Vineria that convinced us that it was so good?" Well what a gift we had brought home for ourselves- it tasted even better than we had remembered. Wonderful wine choices by the host who really knows his stuff and the best empanadas we have ever had thanks to the hostess! Since we were returning to Buenos Aires, the host even went over some Argentinian wines for us to give a try. We will keep you in our dreams for a possible return back while we wish you continued success in your business!
