Visiting wineries with small children

Involving children in productive activities is always rewarding and Uruguayan wineries offer charming environments to experience family days that will stay fresh in their memory for ever. Many offer special activities to entertain all members of the family, from grandparents to little children. Below are some proposals.

1- CAMPO TINTO (CARMELO) 

Special activities for kids, family picnics, wooden didactic games and an outdoor swimming pool are some of the reasons that make Campo Tinto a winery worth visiting with the family. Baby chairs or cribs are some of the amenities they offer.

3- VIÑA VARELA ZARRANZ
The winery offers a journey through time that is ideal for curious families which treasures heritage elements of Uruguayan viticulture. For instance, in its underground cellar dating from 1903, you can see a large collection of French oak barrels, which coexist harmoniously with the modern ones. The environment of the vineyard is surrounded by different species of trees, such as a path of ancient olive trees leading to a large house that looks straight out of a story book. All this can be seen in detail in a guided tour that ends with a wine tasting and a gastronomic option of choice, where kids’ menus and special rates are available.
