Visit to 2 Wineries, testing included! Private guided tour


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.
The Wineries we'll visit are Legado & Cordano. Tasting included

If you are coming by ferry from Buenos Aires, you can take the first one in the morning, returning in the afternoon.

A Recent Review of this tour

From the moment Fabian met us at the ferry, he was enthusiastic, informative and upbeat. We had never been to Uraguay and didn't know what to expect. After spending the day we Fabian we fell in love with 'his city' and country. A walk through the beautiful Old Town Colonia provided a glimpse at the colonial background of the area. We next visited 2 small wineries where we were greeted and treated as old friends. If you only can do one tour during your trip to Buenos-Aires/Uraguay make it with Fabian
