Uruguay in Summer

Written by

Blue skies, a nice breeze, natural floral fragrances and intense green; it is easy to fall in love with Uruguay in Spring. This season brings little miracles to our souls in this southern country, and just like Uruguayan poet Juana de Ibarbourou said roses are not only born in rose plants and wheat not only grows in the fields. Nice temperatures (average is around 62 °F), the Uruguayan spring becomes ideal for ecotourism and adventure tourism and to discover the lifestyle of rural families and try some of the typical country tasks. Besides the nice weather and landscape opportunities, this season also brings discounts in air fares, hotels and car rentals, as well as restaurants and other services for tourists.Uruguay in Spring

Wineries and vineyards

Written by

Uruguay enjoys a privileged geographical position that enables it to be a leading country in the production of wines. Located between parallels 30 and 35 (south latitude), Uruguay shares the location of the best wine regions of Argentina, Chile, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. Its clay soil, balanced sunshine, rain and temperatures are optimal conditions for the vineyards growing on its gentle rolling land.
Wine lovers will find a great variety of wineries in Uruguay offering tours, wine tastings and hosting special parties and events.

To enjoy this experience we recommend contacting the Wine Tourism Association of Uruguay (ATEU), also known as Los Caminos del Vino (The Wine Roads), and especially visiting those establishments registered with the Ministry of Tourism.
All seasons have their charm for wine tourism in Uruguay. For example, in March, the country's main tourist wineries open their doors to share the best of their crops during the Harvest Festival. During this festival, visitors can get a quick introduction to the production activity and equipped with scissors and a basket, they can experiment the pleasure of harvesting on their own.
In winter, between May and June, wineries propose tourist to enjoy one of the most traditional and perfect pairings: lamb and Tannat, as well as various artistic performances and activities that complement the food and wine proposals.
