Uruguay’s burgeoning wine industry produces some wonderful varietals that even rival the world-class wines of neighboring Chile and Argentina. Here are some tips on how to best experience Uruguay’s wine scene while visiting the capital, Montevideo.

Must-Try Varietals
The most famous Uruguayan wine is made from the tannat grape, which originated in the southwest of France. Wine produced from this grape is rich and deeply colored, and has a lot of mouth-puckering tannins—hence the name! Other popular red varietals grown in Uruguay include merlot and cabernet sauvignon, while chardonnay is the most frequently found white grape here. Uruguay has hundreds of boutique, family-owned wineries; see below for specific recommendations.

Must-Do Experiences
  • Sip several tannats and other red wines while you nibble empanadas at a century-old family winery just outside of Montevideo.
  • Learn how the winemaking process differs between red, white, sparkling, and rosé wines under the guidance of an expert winemaker.
  • Enjoy a wine-and-dine experience that includes a three-course lunch paired with great wines at a winery on a small-group tour.
  • Explore the Montevideo wine region on a half-day tour that stops for tastings at several different wineries.
