We had an amazing time at the winery, and were even so lucky to have the owner Carlos show us around and even do the tasting with us. Ryan's ability to make sure, not... More

We did the Gourmet Experience tour with Ryan. Before we even started the tour Ryan sent me loads of watsapp messages with restaurant recommendations for Colonia (which is where we were the day before the tour). He also helped me out with sorting the bus to get to Montevideo and gave me countless other really helpful recommendations. The tour itself... More

When in Montevideo, one should visit the Bodegas region along Ruta 5. Some bodegas you can't miss: H Stagnari, Bousa and Deicas. But you should try to have some Tannat sparkling wine by Pisano, if possible. When in Punta del Este, a must-go place is Bodega Garzón! It is superb! Great wine and food! Don't forget to book your visits... More

A wonderful experience. We went to two small, family-run wineries, and both times our group of 6 was the only group there. High quality wines offered at the tastings, and at the second the winery had prepared us empanadas for lunch. Highly recommended.

Like other reviewers, I searched for wine tours in Montevideo and came across The Wine Experience. TWE received excellent reviews which now we understand why! My husband and I booked a wine tour from Montevideo over Easter Weekend; we were lucky to be accommodated as most of the city was closed for Easter. Ryan brought us to the Pizzorno Family... More

What a great way to spend a day in Montevideo. Ryan picked us up at the port as we got off the ship and returned us to the ship after the tour. We visited a family owned winery speaking with one of the owners. This was a great experience and introduced us to fabulous Uruguayan wines. We had lunch in... More

I searched trip advisor for a wine tour while in Montevideo and The Wine Experience got excellent reviews and rightly so. Ryan Hamilton met us after we got off the cruise ship. We boarded a van and drove to Bodegas Carrau at Castle Pujol. There we met with Marquerite from the winery and had a great tour of the winery.... More
