Wine Tour of Montevideo for Cruise Passengers
After collecting you from the port of Uruguay's capital, we will begin our panoramic tour of the most important landmarks in Montevideo. Close to the central Independence Square, you will see iconic monuments such as the Solis Theatre and the Metropolitan Cathedral.
Our route then continues through the pretty neighborhood of El Prado and to the famous 'La Carreta' national monument. Behind this sculpture dedicated to the traditional gaucho way of life, you will see the Estadio Centenario stadium, which hosted the first World Cup in 1930.
When our tour of Montevideo has come to an end, we head to the wine growing regions on the outskirts of the city. Depending on the season, and the availability, we will visit either the Bouza, Pizzorno, or Juanico traditional winery. Besides exploring the premises, you will also enjoy a tasting of a variety of wines produced with the Tannat grape. As a perfect accompaniment, you will also enjoy a selection of cheeses and local hams.
After your tour of the winery has finished, we will take you back to the port in Montevideo.
Children under the age of 18 can attend this tour only if they are accompanied by their parents or legal guardian. Only guests over the age of 18 years old will be served alcoholic drinks.
Although this tour has been arranged to suit the convenience of cruise passengers and to fit the arrival times of the cruise liners, it is very important that you check your exact arrival and departure time. Please also ensure that your stop in the city is long enough to take the bus tour.
