    Romantic Wine Retreat!
    We had a wonderful stay at Bernardo’s new Posada off the beaten track in Carmelo. They make delicious silky round wines and offer a very intimate experience. You feel like you are catching up with old friends. The Posada offers bicycles, so you can cycle to neighboring wineries close by. Enjoy a sunset drink on the roof of the Posada overlooking the vineyards! Muchas gracias Bernardo. Volvemos! Abrazo. Ryan - Owner of The Wine Experience
    Muchas gracias Ryan por tus comentarios, nos alegramos que hayan disfrutado de su estadía en nuestra posada y bodega ! Siempre bienvenidos ! Abrazos Bernardo Marzuca

    An Oasis
    There aren’t enough superlatives to express the wonderful experience we enjoyed at El Legado. Located in Carmelo, the grounds are very well maintained and surrounded by pastoral views. The tour of the vineyard was most informative . Winery owner Bernardo took time to demonstrate each process from training vines to barrel selection. The winery was initially started by his father and you can see clearly what a labour of love it is for Bernardo and his family. Inside, Federico explained the wines (Syrah, Tannat & Blend) The charcuterie paired very nicely with the wines. I could go on about how great the experience was for us, but what I’ll do instead is encourage you to visit this little place of heaven. Hands down this was the best memory making moment of our road trip to Colonia.
    Muchas gracias por sus comentarios Enza, un placer haberlos recibido en nuestra bodega y haber podido compartir tan lindo momento junto a ustedes ! Disfrutamos mucho con cada visita, ese es el verdadero sentido del vino ! Siempre bienvenidos ! Abrazos Bernardo y familia !

    What a find!
    Wonderful experience here! The owner makes you feel like part of the family. He showed us the vineyard and wine-making facility. He even shared little details like how he hand feeds two beautiful hawks that now protect his grapes from other birds. You feel like you are in a beautiful novel while on his property. The rooms are brand new and very nice. The wine tasting is wonderful. We can’t say enough about this great bodega. Highly recommend.

This is a lovely Vineyard,

We really enjoyed the Uruguayan BBQ lunch with paired wine. Lunch was delicious and plentiful, steak, chorizo, potato, sweet potato, peppers, yum, yum, yum!!

The wine was really nice and the service was excellent. A great way to spend an afternoon.

Location: it's a beautiful place with nice and big rooms, but you have to get there by car. They only host 4 couples and the most beautiful part is the sitting area outside the room, where you can watch the sunset. The city Carmelo is a 10 minute drive away.

Room: The bathroom is very nice and they had instant hot water with good pressure. There is a little kitchen area, as they will deliver a wodden box with breakfast and leave it over night in front of your door. This kind of attracted a lot of ants.

Food: for breakfast they offered some bred, orange juice, a yoghurt which seemed bad, fruits and cheap ham and cheese. We couldn't eat it and gave it to a dog. The degustation was included and we additionally booked the BBQ. We barely ate it, as it seems like they used low quality meat. The price was overpriced for what I got. I wouldn't recommend it.

Program: we arrived and didn't get an introduction, as the owner barely spoke English. I told her, I speak Spanish but she decided to stick to English and therefore not telling us anything about the area. So later on I went to the reception to ask about the program for this area. The receptionist then explained us the tour options, where we could drive with the bike for free. The degustation is the most important part so first they told us a little about the history and the process. When they served the wine, we didn't get any explanation or guidance and just drank it.

All in all -> I was super dissatisfied and had higher expectations. I would recommend to stay with another

Welcomed by the Bernardo's family, we spent wonderful day learning about wine production and enjoying a wonderful lunch! This winery is located very close to Carmelo and just 1 hour away from Colonia. Great experience!

Thank you!

My favorite winery. Delicious wine. Wonderful friendly service. Go for a tasting. They even have brand new large rooms to stay a few nights amidst the vineyards.

Wonderful family owned vineyard. The owners conducted the tour and showed us around the property; beautiful grounds. We sampled all the wines which were very good. The food was amazing; I highly recommend getting the cheese & meat platter plus the grilled meat and veggies. Amazing place- I communicated thru Facebook to set up our tour and someone would get back to me immediately every time I had a question.

Maria and Bernardo along with their sons are amazing! The passion for sharing the three exceptional wines is very obvious as each one of them give knowledge, expertise and a warm welcome to all who enter their lovely winery. Each wine produced is unique and the production process has been planned to perfection. We have been to numerous wineries in Uruguay and by far this one is our favorite.
What a treat it was to enjoy our time there and they now offer four suites to stay in. This blends so well with the peace and serenity that abounds there...what a retreat to be enjoyed by all!!!
