The Unexpected Flavors of Uruguay

More information FROM 6,000 USD
Welcome to the best way to explore Uruguay: eating

Uruguay may be famous for its nightlife, free mindset, and perhaps its eccentric presidents; however, few people know how “delicious” this country really is. We will explore the colonial towns up north around Colonia del Sacramento, paying special attention to the wineries in nearby Narbona. Here, you will experience authentic “colonial indulgences” as you make cheese, distill your very own liquor, ride through vineyards in a vintage auto, and sample the wine …even picking the grapes. We will then head east to Punta del Este, where a very special establishment awaits: a hotel, gallery and winery all in one. All these routes, frequently stopping to sample the local cuisine and the area mate! Indulge in the unexpected flavors of Uruguay.

Just a short ferry ride across the river from Buenos Aires, you’ll find small Uruguayan towns brimming with colonial charm. Wander along cobblestone streets, stopping to rest in the shade of 300-year-old sycamores.
Sample a Chivito..!!

Some say that the only way to really know a country is through its cuisine. Get closer to Uruguay’s culture, sampling what the locals eat in their day-to-day lives.

Quaint Family-run Wineries

The word’s getting out: Uruguay has some GREAT wines! At its wineries, which are small family-run concerns, you can meet owners who will share their passion for viticulture with you.

Sip Mate
This caffeine-rich infused drink was 1st consumed by local indigenous peoples, but today is drunk by practically everyone in Uruguay. Don't leave without learning about the history of yerbas, bombillas and calderas -- and, of course, sampling a mate.
