Your wine expert will meet you at Alquimista Hotel in Carrasco. You will be welcome with a glass of wine followed by a tour of the property. This is followed by a very complete tasting of wines with plates of cheeses and empanadas. This is more of an educational experience, where you will learn about the Tannat grape including all you to know about Uruguay and their wines. If it's a nice day we can do the tasting outside in the garden facing the pool. Highly recommended!
I am Creator and Founder of The Wine Experience offering Food & Wine Tours to 130 destinations. My interest for wine started in South Africa. I grew up next to a wine farm and was always fascinated with the grape. After my studies, I worked for The Carnegie Club at Skibo Castle in the Highlands of Scotland, where I had to look after many high profile guests. I then secured a position at Majestic Wine in London, where I finished by WSET Certificate followed by working for The Yachts of Seabourn as Head Sommelier for 3 years. I also started a successful wine export business, but what I enjoy most is doing private tastings and taking wine lovers to small wineries off beaten track!

Welcome drink and selection of wines
Alquimista was built in 1925 and is well known for its Art & Architecture. If you are an art fan you will be in for a treat. The wine tasting will take place in the garden or in the main house.
This is a great opportunity to visit Carrasco. We will start in the late afternoon at 17:30, so you have enough time to have lunch and do some exploring before our sunset tasting.
