Winery tours around Colonia

Does anyone know of a tour guide/company that would take people to the local wineries for people who are based in Colonia?

Hello jenneepoo, near Colonia you´ll find the winery owned by Bernardi family. They show the facilities and have a vey good degustation of wines and grappas, they produce. If you want some more, the other wineries in Colonia are in the Carmelo area, 60 miles north, the nicest to visit being Irurtia and Zubizarreta. At this places, you better do reservations and it is possible to ask for a cheese plate. If the party is of 2, you can go privately with a cab. How many are you and which day are you going to be there? If its a week end, you could add to the wine tour another visit to the presidential estancia "Anchorena" and your day will be fullfilled. Greetings.

Thank you, Zerpaconcept! We'll be there on a Friday. If I read your response correctly, we should make reservations through each winery's website, then take a cab to the Carmelo area, which is an hour from Colonia? Thanks for the info and we look forward to seeing your city!

I arrived in Colonia last night.

Is it possible to join a small group to do a local winery tour for the day?

I don't want the expense of taxi'ing alone an hour out of town.

Best to ask the posada to arrange this or is there a travel agency in town?

Didn't make any plans for here and know virtualyl nothign about Uruguay--just hopped on the ferry to escape the noice of BA for a couple of days. Staying in lovely Posada Plaza Mayor, arranged by Buquebus in BA.

Gracias.
