Uruguay

Discover everything you need to <strong>live a unique experience in Uruguay</strong>. This Latin American country has 19 departments and 89 municipalities. Its capital city is Montevideo, a city whose metropolitan area includes more than a million and a half inhabitants. Uruguay’s climate is mild with abundant rainfalls almost all year long; these features favour harvests. In fact, the <strong>wine production</strong> <strong>in the country</strong> has over 9,000 hectares of land. Tannat red wine grape variety has become the country’s emblem, which is the biggest producer of this variety of French origin. However, there are other varieties in the market, such as Merlot, Cabernet, Malbec and white varieties Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Sémillon. The elaboration of the Uruguayan wine follows traditional guidelines, with wine producers passing the good wine practices from generation to generation. The country is little by little working on the oenology and oenotourism world, since its wine production started 250 years ago and the implantation process is as soft as the aftertaste of its wines. You will love Uruguay for its unique wines and incredible landscapes. Some of the remarkable tourist destinations in Latin America are found here. It is the case of Punta del Este – where you will be able to behold an architectural style mixing the colonial past with the avant-garde style – apart from discovering some of the most exclusive shops in the sophisticated Calle 20 Street. On its beaches, you will discover the Atlantic Ocean tempting you for a bath. Along its coastline, you will find some viewpoints that reveal one of the most beautiful landscapes in South America. But if you would rather go ballooning over some of the most beautiful landscapes in Uruguay, ride a collector’s carriage for a charming tour full of glamour, enjoy a picnic with your beloved ones underneath hundred-year-old olive trees in Colinas de Garzón or visit a winery offering a high-quality wine within the best reference oenotourism tour in the country and in America, do not miss the opportunity to <strong>discover Bodegas Garzón</strong> – the main figure of the Uruguayan Wine Tour that has placed the country on the world’s wine map.
