    The Winery is family-run and has a production considered small but the wines are very good. We had the privilege of having a tasting on a deck in the middle of the vineyard with a traditional Uruguayan BBQ. Paula, the family, is very attentive and she even served us wine and explained the characteristics of each of them. It was a very pleasant experience, I recommend a visit.

    In tours to wineries interested in more tasting than the actual visit. The Uruguayans take wine seriously and, I think, are modest. There are seen, as an example, this small Winery. What a beautiful wine production, high range epreço accessible. All this presented by nice Paula, the owner. A must for people who go to Punta del Leste.

    We didn't know that you should book the route before, arrived unexpectedly, just Leandro meets us on the road and very kindly summarizes us all with great kindness. We brought us many wines and enjoy a beautiful visit.
