Tour was Spanish Only
Daniel_S
, Aug 2022
Great food and wine but the entire tour at the winery was in Spanish only with no real translation. The lunch was very good and the wine was very nice.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2022
Hi Daniel: I will speak with the owner of the winery as she was informed that you will need a separate tour to the spanish speaking group. Javier (your driver/guide) told me that he did translate for you, but was not able to do it simultaneously. This was a miscommunication on the wineries part. You did mention the food and wine was very good, so I am glad you enjoyed your wine paired lunch. Yours faithfully, Ryan A. Hamilton

Wine tour at Spignolio vineyard

Fantastic day from the moment we were picked up by our driver Martin. He was very helpful and informative about Uruguay, Montevideo, places to eat. The vineyard was idyllic, we were given a tour of the vineyard itself by the winemaker and Diego's wife gave us a personal wine tasting. She was informative and passionate about the wines they made with good reason. The meat and cheese platter were a perfect accompaniment and the lunch was equal to a fine dining restaurant. I thoroughly recommend the wine tour, you won't regret it!

This tour was one of the highlights of our month long South America vacation. Ryan was very knowledgeable on wine and did an excellent job giving us a brief tour of Montevideo and explaining wine in Uruguay. He selected a boutique winery to visit and it was amazing and charming. The winery manager gave us a tour and explained the process and then the winery provided a marvelous lunch of grilled meats and vegetables as typically found in Uruguay. We could not have asked for more. Will do it again when I go back

A wonderful experience with Ryan Hamilton. Very knowledgeable. A great visit and tasting at the Carrau vineyard hosted by the owner himself. Excellent sampling of five of their products, and a chance to buy a couple of our favourites. Lunch was great fun, prepared by one of Montevideo's premier chefs, and accompanied by a couple of Ryan's favourite wines. Can't recommend this one highly enough!

Michael W

Our knowledgeable English speaking guide (and driver),Ryan, picked 4 of us up for our tour. He was entertaining and informative on the drive to the winery (which wasn't too far out of town). The winery we visited (Bodega Carreou) had a 10th generation member of the wine making family give us the tour, which included a chance to see wine being bottled and labled. After a short tour of the facilities we went to a cozy tasing room. We were offered a wide array of wines, from the starter series to the premium line, including some older vintages. There was no shortage of wine to be drunk. After we had our fill, Ryan drove us back to town to a special restaurant for a special lunch, with a special wine that Ryan brought to accompany the meal. I was fearful the meal would be something typical and unmemorable. I shouldn't have worried-the meal was the best we had during our 14 day South American trip and the wine was great!. It was obvious the chef took pride in his craft and rightfully so. This wine tour was well worth what we paid and I recommend Ryan without hesitation!!
