Make the most of your trip to Carmelo and enjoy the par excellence tourist activity in the region: wine tasting at its intimate wineries. Familia Irurtia is one of the most traditional and its years of experience in wine making makes it a reference for locals and tourists.

This tour in Carmelo begins with a relaxing boat ride through the Arroyo de las Vacas, where you’ll be able to see the Seré beach and the islands near the city. The tour guide will show you the places where rivers Rio de la Plata and Paraná come together and in the distance you’ll see the famous kilometer 0 on the Uruguay River. You will also go under the swing bridge inaugurated in 1912 which is the only one in Uruguay with a human-powered rotating mechanism.

The tour continues until the arrival at Bodega Familia Irurtia where you’ll take a guided tour through the vineyards and the wine cellar. The Irurtia Winery was born with the arrival of the Basque Don Lorenzo to Carmelo in the second half of the 19th century. This visionary man quickly realized the land was perfect for wine making and his efforts to cultivate the grapevine bore fruit in 1913 with the first harvest.

Among the outstanding labels from Bodega Familia Irurtia are Viñagala, Varietales, Km 0 Río de la Plata Reserva and Gran Reserva, Botrytis Excellence, Dante Irurtia de Colección, Grappas Varietales y los Espumosos. Each line has different strains such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Tannat, Syrah, Malbec, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and many others. During the guided tour of Bodega Familia Irurtia you’ll taste 3 glasses of premium wines, along with a selection of cheeses and homemade breads, and at the end you will return by boat to the starting point.
