“Excellent way to spend your Saturday evening!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

This is an excellent and different way to spend you saturday evening. The owners gather 8 persons together to a wine tasting. It was a very good experience. We tasted 6 different wines and discussed about them. We learnt a lot and it was a pleasant evening.

Don't forget to book it in advance, since only 8 persons are allowed. We paid 100 uruguayan pesos per person. If you are vegetarian, tell the owners when you're booking! Maybe they preparec something for you.

Thank you very much for your review!

We are really happy to hear you enjoyed the experience.

I wanted to correct the price for the tasting is 500 Uruguayan Pesos.

And thank you for the tip for the vegetarians, for sure we will have something special for them if they let us know in advance.

Looking forward to welcoming you soon at La Vinería!

“Excellent way to spend your Saturday night!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

We had such an amazing time at their Sat night wine tasting! The table hosts 8 guests plus our wonderful & friendly hosts, Martin & Carolina. We tried 5 wines, 4 Uruguayan and 1 Argentine served along with meat & cheese platters and lamb empanadas. It was a perfect evening! The four of us left with new favorite wines to try and felt like we had made new friends. Martin is very knowledgeable and gives you a background on each wine/bodega along with tasting notes. His wife, Carolina, is just lovely & the most gracious of hosts! Their wine shop has a wonderful selection of wine and great atmosphere. Exactly what you'd hope for... I cannot recommend attending one of their "tastings" highly enough. At only $500 pesos per person, its a steal! Even if you are not in Colonia on a Sat, stop by to have a chat and pick up a bottle or two from their excellent selection of wines. Thanks again for such a pleasant experience!!

“Complete Excellence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

My partner Corey and I stumbled upon this amazing winery in Colonia de Sacramento. We were so enchanted by the the shop and the owners we extended our stay another day so we could attend the wine tasting. We learned a great deal from our knowledgeable host Martin
and went away with a heightened appreciation of wines. We now have a small obsession experimenting with pairing wines and food. We look forward to returning to this amazing city and can hardly wait to visit La Vineria de Colonia again. Thank you from Corey and Michelle

“A must if you're in Colonia and know your wine.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

I participated in a wine tasting evening and it was fantastic. The sommelier was knowledgeable and interesting and the selection if wine is suprising in the best way possible.
Lots of hidden gems here.
