We had an overnight trip to Carmelo and stayed in Campo Tinto, the staff their sent us on our bicycles two blocks to Almacen de la Capilla and we are so happy they did! The setting was absolutely stunning!!
We had a tour from the lovely Diana (I think that was her name) who showed us the shop and wine cellar before sending us off to wander through the vines. After a lovely little walk we came back to a beautiful table with a gorgeous view just outside the Almacen where Diana poured us our first of about 6-8 different glasses, all the wines were really good and we had a delicious ham and cheese platter, the olive oil was so tasty we took 4 bottles all the way back to the UK with us too!
Diego the owner came out towards our 5th glass to show us another wine and he was lovely too, everyone was so friendly and it was a really relaxing atmosphere throughout. I think we paid about $25 and considering we took away wines and oil it was excellent value for money.
I would go here time and time again and have recommended it to all of my Uruguayan family to take the trip from Montevideo!
We will return on our next visit to Uruguay I promise! Thank you for a truly fantastic day :)
