Short Description

Looking for a wine-themed side trip from Buenos Aries? Problem solved! This four day private wine and food escape is just what you're looking for.

With a fast and reliable connection by boat to Buenos Aires, the West region is also where the Jesuits planted the first vines during Colonial times. Even though this region is a longtime favourite for investors, it's also simply home to many small familial bodegas. Colonia is a tourist hub with steady growth where wine goes hand in hand with a good life. This place combines the new and historical within a short distance of the two capital cities. The charming gastronomy, the family owned vineyards and the distinctiveness of its accommodation make the West region the ideal starting point for your journey and to discover our wines.
