Rich with European heritage, Montevideo reflects the cultures of its early settlers from Spain, Portugal and Italy in its architecture and attitude.

A drive will show you the highlights of the city, including some of its historical landmarks: the Graf Spee Monument, the Plaza Independencia and the Palacio Legislativo (among the three most beautiful Parliament buildings in the world), as well as the Battle y Ordonez Park, Prado Park and the Carrasco residential area.

Continue your journey into the countryside, where your destination is a traditional Winery. Usually, we like to visit Bouza Winery Boutique, located in the source of the Melilla Stream, surrounded by native woods. The Bouza family has always believed that working on smaller scales produces better outcomes and they take great care in applying this to every stage of the wine-making process.

Learn about the techniques of wine making, about the differences in vintages and varieties, and how the vineyards are cared for.

The visit also includes the cellar, and an impressive museum of classic cars and motor-bikes.

Back at the tasting-room, enjoy the best Uruguayan meats (usually lamb and meat roast, also served with potatoes and salad) and taste four varieties of wine, most typically including Chardonnay-Albarino, Tempranillo-Tannat, Tannat-Merlot and the exclusive Tannat Parcela Unica.
