FOOD AND BEVERAGES

Alcoholic drinks in Uruguay

Uruguay has a 250-year-old history of wine production. The predominating local grape is tannat. Not a subtle grape, it has a hard and, as the name suggests, a tannic edge when young. Blending tannat with merlot doesn't help much.

FOR TURIST

Places To See in Uruguay

Uruguay is a combination of St. Tropez, Rio de Janeiro and other countries that attract millions of tourists to their beaches. But the beaches are not the only things that you can see when you travel to Uruguay. The country also has a very rich cultural heritage, a combination of Portuguese, Brazilian, Argentinian and Spanish cultures, traditions, architecture and food.
