Great Day-trip Escape from Buenos Aires!

We had an absolutely amazing day touring Carmelo's finest with Borravino! The booking was simple, Damian quickly confirmed our reservation, easily met us at the ferry port, and was a superb guide on our expedition. The drive from Colonia to Carmelo was around an hour, Damian gave us a nice background on the area, grape varietals in Uruguay, developed a keen understanding of our wine preferences to help on the tastings, and was pleasant to get to know. Our first stop was at Familia Irurtia, where the staff took us on a tour followed by a nice tasting of several wines under the trees. Afterwards, we stopped at El Legado, a beautiful boutique vineyard run by Bernardo. It was a very intimate setting, where we had a great tasting including right from the barrel, and finished with a nice stroll around the property. We both felt like we were taking a casual trip to visit family in the countryside away from the hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires. What a great escape! We arrived back in Colonia with plenty of time to have a light afternoon meal (Damian was full of suggestions), and explore the town before getting back on our ferry to Buenos Aires. This was such a great tour, and we highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a quality day-trip while on business travel to Argentina, enthusiastic visitors to new countries who want a genuine experience, and of course avid wine lovers! Thank you Damian!
