- Taste tannat, the ‘national grape’ of Uruguay
- Private tastings with your personal sommelier
Tannat is often referred to as the ‘national grape’ of Uruguay - it produces incredible reds and roses that are light in body and low in tannins. First introduced by Basque settlers, if you visit a restaurant in Uruguay you will almost always encounter a tannat on the wine list. This fantastic Montevideo gift experience sees you journey out to the prestigious Canelones wine region alongside a professional guide to spend some time at a friendly family-owned winery. Here you’ll meet the owners, tour the cellar and the production area, as well as enjoying a few tastings of course.
Situated right in the heart of this picturesque rural countryside, the winery offers simply breathtaking views on every side. You’ll learn plenty more about tannat wines from a personal sommelier who will explain its significance, and how it came to dominate the Uruguayan wine industry. Snack on tasty homemade empanadas while you enjoy the winery’s finest vintages, and you’re bound to find yourself wondering how much money you’d need to open your own vineyard!
