Thank you to Ryan for a truly amazing and informative day learning about and tasting the wines of Uruguay, followed by an incredibly delicious gourmet lunch complemented by wines from your personal collection! It was especially wonderful to meet the wine makers and hear about the wine-making process and history directly from them. It is clear why your tour is... More

Uruguay has a wine scene that is just now beginning to garner attention. The Wine Experience is a great way to experience this first hand. KEY is Ryan. He's an enthusiastic supporter of the local wine community, is knowledgeable about Uruguayan wine and has worked internationally as a sommelier so his breathe of experience for discussion and comparison is extensive....

This is an excellent way to spend a day in Montevideo. Ryan is an accessible expert on the wines of Uruguay and the small groups which he limits his tours to mean that you can ask all the questions you want. Visiting the vineyards gets you out of the city which is a bonus and the wine-tasting is great fun.... More

We had a wonderful day with Ryan in Montevideo! He took us to a lovely winery for tastings and a tour. Lovely Margarita (our hostess at the winery) was so gracious and kind! The wines and snacks were much enjoyed. Lunch was spectacular... Nothing short of brilliant. Every course better than the next. In addition, Ryan really did a great... More

Our trip with Ryan to two wineries near Montevideo was fantastic. I wanted the trip to be educational, not just an excuse to try good wine, and it was (though of course we did also try good wine!). Ryan has many photos on his iPad, and it really enhanced the conversation that he was able to highlight different things more... More

We had a really good time with Ryan. He's very communicative and gave us a lot information during our trip in his car. The winery we visited was a nice one- the landscape around peaceful and quiet. We got a good impression of how they make the wine we tasted later! After the visit of the winery Ryan took us... More

What a fabulous day! My husband and I were spending 4 days in Buenos Aires and had done research for wine tours and day trips to Uruguay. We found The Wine Experience and Ryan had excellent reviews. I can personally say that he lives up to all of the reviews on this site. He was very prompt on replying to... More

We spent a wonderful day with Ryan and visiting two wineries just outside of Montevideo. Ryan was prompt in picking us up, and he told us about himself and how he ended up in Uruguay as we drove out of the city. We learned some history of the city as well. We were able to visit two very different wineries...one... More

We did this last weekend, and all the 6 persons on our group loved it. Ryan is an amusement guide and hostess. He choose a very good winery and the visit was really good, not just fun, but instructive. The owners present the local themselves, and we drank really good Tannat's. The lunch was incredible as well. Well, nothing to... More

Me and my wife just had a wonderful day taking a tour with Ryan. We had another couple on the same tour (Erika and Steven, from the US), so we all went on Ryan´s car from Montevideo all the way to the Winery. We took the "Countryside Experience", which consists of going to a single Winery, where we got to... More
