What people are saying about Montevideo

Excellent Wine, Excellent Discussion, Excellent Comapny

Ryan did a great job. First working out logistics of picking us up and dropping us off was great (we were in a rented Air BnB). Communications were very good. Driving to the winery allowed Ryan to tell some good stories and give some history of Uruguay. When we got to the winery it was a family owned winery called Pizzorno. The great grandson of the founder gave us an educational tour and provide a very nice tasting of multiple wines plus some lovely homemade empanadas. After we returned from the tour I messaged Ryan later in the week to get some restaurant tips and he provided some great suggestions.

Perfect winery, wonderful reception of owners, excellent wines and a superb lunch. It was a perfect and extremely pleasant day.

Our guide Atila was spectacular. The beers we had were delicious and the atmosphere was very pleasant! I recommend the tour.

Exceptional experience.

We incredibly enjoy this activity, very enriching the learning about Wine.
