In short: the entire experience was absolutely wonderful! The vineyards were beautiful, the wine was amazing, and Ryan is a perfect tour guide! At length: this tour was the first thing we did in 2017, and it was an amazing way to start the new year! Ryan picked us up at our hotel in the morning and we knew right... More

I recently had the pleasure of doing the Sunset Gourmet Experience with my wife and sons (in their 20s). This was absolutely the highlight of a great trip to Buenos Aires and Punta del Este. Ryan picked us up at our hotel in Punta del Este and proceeded to take us to a beautiful small vineyard (Altos de la Ballena)... More

We had the pleasure of visiting José Ignacio with friends in December 2015. We discovered The Wine Experience prior to our trip, and it sounded like fun so we booked! Ryan picked us up at our hotel as promised, and our first stop was a private tasting at Narbona. Ryan gave us a tour of the winery, explained their history,... More

Ryan picked us up at the ship and took us to 2 wineries and lunch in Punta Del Este. We truly experienced a first class tour from the interactions with Ryan to the visit with the wineries and a delicious gourmet meal in a beautiful private dining area. It was great and we highly recommend this tour!

Ryan runs great wine tours and tastings! Uruguay produces some exquisite wines, but generally in fairly small quantity, so they are not major players on the export market. Our European supermarkets concentrate on Argentinian and Chilean production, so we miss some gems from this beautiful country. Ryan's combination of knowledge, humour and personality make for a great time. We did... More

This experience was absolutely amazing. My wife and I were in Uruguay for 8 days and this was the best part of our trip. Ryan is a great guide, he is funny, entertaining, and is very knowledgeable about the wines. We went to a beautiful vineyard and then to a breathtaking property over looking the beach and got to try... More

Ryan is amazing and his wine experience is truly something you need to get involved with while in Punta. First of all, Ryan is hilarious and will entertain you before, during and after your tour. Really great energy, and a great resource for Punta tips. Make sure you schedule this early on in the trip, because you're going to not... More

We only had one day in Punta del Este and wanted to explore the best of the area. We very lucky enough to find Ryan who organized the perfect start to 2016 for us.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Brian today learning about Tannat Urugayanian wines. He picked us up at the cruise ship dock and we drove to the winery. He discussed some sites along the way plus his interesting background. The winery/estancia is a lovely setting. The 4 of us enjoyed tasting plus fresh cheeses they produced and homemade breads, while... More
