Taste a variety of wines with a focus on tannat grapes, accompanied by homemade empanadas.

Ryan is a wonderful host! He is super knowledgeable about wine as well as the locations he took me. He's a great conversationalist and did an excellent job with providing an amazing wine tasting experience! So far, I have had two wine tasting experiences with Ryan and am hoping I can do one more before I leave Uruguay. If you like adventure and going a little off the beaten path, Ryan is your guy.

Argentina and Chile are the two South American countries known for producing wine, but I had no idea Uruguay also produced wine as well. Tannat is what they’re known for and they’re big and bold. Matias was my guide for the day. He picked me up right on time, was great company for the day to learn about Uruguay and also the wines. I did two wineries, but recommend doing at least three. You won’t be disappointed. I ended up buying twelve bottles to bring home!

We were taken to Pizzorno winery by a great tour guide Miguel, who shared with us some great stories and spots to check out in Montevideo. At the winery lucio delivered a friendly and relaxed tasting all served with some fantastic empanadas, and of course some great tasting wines. Ideal for those short on time and who may struggle to get to vineyards without their own transport. Would recommend to others.

This was an amazing experience. Ryan was not only great at setting up the tour, but was a plethora of information and recommendations for Montevideo and Buenos Aires.

The wine and lunch were excellent!

You will not be disappointed!

There were 4 of us on the Celebrity Eclipse, with the last port of call in Montevideo. One of our group arranged the Tannat Wine Tour with Ryan, and he transported our group with another couple thru the countryside outside Montevideo.

The landscape turned from port to industrial to city and outskirts, arriving at Pizzorno Winery in about 45 minutes. Along the way Ryan told us a bit about himself and how he got into this business, along with some insights about Uruguay in general. At the winery we were introduced to Lucio, who showed us around this small and efficient boutique winery. He told us the history of the winery (started in 1910), as well as the various types of grapes they use there, including the Tannat, a grape we had not heard of prior to this trip.

Upon completion of this informative tour, we were taken to a small tasting room and introduced to their line of excellent wines, along with the tastiest empanadas of the entire trip. Lucio had a great knowledge of the wines, illustrating on a white board as he spoke with the ease of a college professor. We were fascinated, and with great empanadas and generous sample pours, we all had an incredible time.

I recommend this tour highly....Ryan is an easygoing informative guide, and Lucio is an excellent representative for the Winery. This is a worthwhile trip. And you might see a 74 Maverick parked there.

We just took the Tannat Wine Experience tour from Montevideo. This tour exceeded our expectations in so many ways. While this was our first tour with The Wine Experience, we have previously taken wine tours in many wine regions around the world. Ryan was a perfect host and handled every aspect of our planning and touring to perfection. After reading the TripAdvisor reviews, I felt confident that this was the company I wanted to use in planning our wine tours in Montevideo. I contacted Ryan through his website and he responded back very quickly. Everything was set up quickly and easily.
The tour itself was visiting a small family run winery. The visit in our case was led by one of the owners of the winery, the great grandson of the man who started the winery over 100 years ago. We were seated in an exclusive room overlooking the vineyard. We were given a tour of the winery and then after that we had some wonderful wine tastings along with empanadas. While we were tasting the wines we got a real understanding of how each of the wines were produced. After that we had a wonderful three course meal including some delicious Uruguayan beef.
The tour was not rushed at all and the ability to stay in the one winery made us feel like we were visiting with the family instead of just taking a tour.
Thank you Ryan for all your work in making our day so memorable.

We booked this tour independently while on a cruise and were very pleased with both the winery and the people there. This was a very small group but, we were treated very well - informative with generous samples. The biggest problem is that we are now hooked on Tannant!

We enjoy our wines but could hardly be called oenophiles. We had booked a small group tour, but it was only me, my wife and Ryan. He picked us up at the hotel and off we went to a winery outside Montevideo for a tour and lunch. He's a chatty and very friendly fella. We were shown around by the owner's son (the person who actually runs the place) and who gave us a relaxed, friendly tour of the premises/cellars etc. This was followed by an excellent lunch in a darkly wooded private dining room combined with tasting 4-5 of their wines. Initially we thought only visiting one winery wouldn't be enough and I still think at least one more stop on the tour would have been good to allow for some more tastings, but we thoroughly enjoyed our visit at this winery. Not cheap, but highly recommended.

We arrived in Uruguay on a Saturday and were greeted at our hotel by Ryan who took us to a tour of the Spinoglio Winery and a lovely lunch. It was a wonderful introduction to the area and a must do for anyone who enjoys wine, and experiencing different cultures. The tour was given by the owner who had deep understanding of the wines and the area. Ryan was a wealth of information about Montevideo, he picked us up and delivered us back to our hotel loaded with excellent information about the area regarding things to do and places to eat. We wished we had more time to see other wineries but Ryan provided us excellent recommendations to try in Montevideo! This trip did not disappoint!
