Borravino Wine Tours was created by professionals born in Mendoza and Uruguay who were passionate about wine in our personal lives but working in other fields. One day not so long ago we decided to give up our day jobs and dedicate ourselves to what we are really love - wine and the culture surrounding it.

Reviews

Had a great time on this wine tour. Our guide Carla was very knowledgeable, spoke English and was answering all the questions I had. I learned a lot. Food was delicious and kept refilling us with tastings from selection of varieties. We came in January and the weather was nice, sunny with a nice breeze. We probably stayed like 2 hours at the restaurant just cause it was chill. Our driver Augustine was awesome too, spoke English, friendly and no hassle pick up/drop off. Thanks for the experience!

Wonderful experience from start to finish. Before the tour, Damian answered all our questions quickly via email, and the logistics were as easy as could be (pick up at the ferry port upon arrival, drop off at hotel). Our guide, Fabian, was super friendly and taught us all about Uruguay, Colonia, and the winemaking history of the region. The boutique winery we visited was a beautiful family-owned location with spectacular food and wine. We got to meet the family and enjoy a delicious asado (along with refills after we had finished the initial tasting). It was a lovely day and a very well-organized tour. Highly recommend for some peaceful time in Colonia!

This was an absolutely fantastic tour and a can't miss itinerary stop for anyone visiting Uruguay or Buenos Aires. Our guide, Andres, was incredibly personable and very knowledgeable not just about wines but also about the countryside we traveled through and Uruguay in general. We thoroughly enjoyed learning more about the beautiful country of Uruguay from a local on our drive from the port to the wineries! The two wineries we visited were nestled among beautiful countryside and we enjoyed picturesque views while wine tasting and munching on local meats and cheeses. The wines themselves were fantastic and it was so neat to tour the vineyards and learn about the wine making operation from the winemaker himself. This tour really does have something everyone will love, even those who might not be wine drinkers!

This was one of the best parts of our trip to Buenos Aires, and it didn't even occur in BA! First, I had some questions so I emailed Damian via the we travel page, and he got right back to me with the information I needed to make a decision. We emailed back and forth and I knew someone would be waiting for us when we arrived on the ferry from BA to Colonia. Andres met us in Colonia and the day blasted off. Andres was fun, funny, knowledgeable, and chill. He took us to the old bullfighting ring where we got some neat pictures, taught us the real name of the country we call Uruguay, told us about the country's history a little, and about the canola fields that were in full bloom. At the Fripp winery, our guide spoke some English but wanted Andres to translate for her, which he did gladly. We got a great explanation of what the winery used to do and how it is modernizing and upping its wine qualities. We've done a few winery tours in the states and this was still a learning experience for us. Then Andres hung out while we did our wine tasting and snacking. The second winery we went to was gorgeous. Some of our group even commented on the beautiful views from the bathrooms! Best of all, our tour was supposed to end at 230 but Andres was sooo laid back that we did not get back to Colonia until 5pm-ish. Andres even stopped on the side of the road for us to get some photos in the canola fields. Seriously, they were too pretty. I highly recommend working with Damian and Andres to taste some wonder Uruguayan wines and see the Uruguayan country-side.

Each of our experiences planned by Damian were perfect - great wine, great views, friendly people! We had a wonderful time in Mendoza and Uruguay and cannot recommend this experience enough! :)
