Driving 78 kilometers outside the city of Colonia del Sacramento, we will arrive at Carmelo. Around this city, there are different wineries. In each one of them, you will be able to know about the production of different varieties of white, rose and red wines. After that, you will be able to taste our traditional Tannat (a French grape that was brought to Uruguay and it adapted to our climate in a perfect way).
It is possible to taste other wines like Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, Risling, Botrytis, etc.
Each winery is different from the others because each one of them has its own charm.

A Recent Review of this tour

Fabian was waiting for us at the dock upon arrival from BA. After a short tour in Colonia, we left for Carmelo. On the way, we stopped at the bullring, walked around, went into the church. The first winery in Carmelo was lovely, charming. After touring the wine-making facilities, we ate bread, cheese, and local sausage under the shaded arbor. Then on to the next winery. Fabian speaks excellent English, is very knowledgeable about his country, its social structures, economy. Wonderful guide.
