Uruguay, A Hidden Gem.
Of all the destinations to visit in South America, Uruguay can often be eclipsed by its neighbours. With Argentina and its celebrated wine regions and world renowned Malbec to its right and Brazil with its glittering Carnival and enviable Rio to its left; Uruguay is like the lovable nerd overlooked in high school. Uruguay might not have won the popularity contest just yet, but it would be a mistake to miss out on this historic, charming and beautiful country.
On this Montevideo City Tour & Wine Tasting, you’ll venture to rural Montevideo who--with its highly favorable climate for the development of cutting-edge viticulture--is known to generate fantastic wine. Grapevines such as Tannat, Tempranillo, Albariño, Chardonnay and Merlot are grown in this area, creating world-renowned bottles that are celebrated internationally (take THAT, Argentina).
What's Special About The Bouza Winery?
The star of your trip will be a visit to the Bouza Winery, which is like visiting a French chateau in the middle of South America. Built in 1942, the Bouza winery is historic and combines classic and modern winemaking technology. If you need another reason to visit Uruguay for a wine tasting; look no further than the fact that while every other tourist flocks to the Mendoza wine region you’ll be headed off the beaten wine path to vineyards and wineries that won’t stay under the radar for long.
