We first met WIne Experience Owner Ryan Hamilton when he picked us up at our hotel. He whisked us off to the first winery established in the Punta Del Este area, Alto de la Ballena, Ryan is a great host, easy conversationalist, and knowledgeable wine guide. He introduced to Paula, the vineyard proprietor. The two guided us thru a wonderful tasting in a very scenic overlook above the vineyards.
Next we were off to Playa Vik, and got a tour of that breathtaking property in Jose Ignacio, overlooking the sea. Ryan treated us to a tasting of his personal wine collection, while we noshed and looked out over the infinity pool at the sunset.
This is a private setting you will never see unless you pony up the very substantial hotel tariff. And Ryan's hospitality and wine knowledge is a joy to experience, in such beautiful surroundings. For anyone visiting Jose Ignacio, La Barra, or Punta del Este who has any interest in wine at all, this is a tour you should absolutely not miss.
