Uruguayan Wines

5 Days FROM USD 1,440

Overview

Its excellent geographic location has led Uruguay to become a privileged producer of wines with international standards of quality in the last few years. Its vineyards lie between the 30th and 35th parallels south, just like in Argentina, Chile, Australia and New Zealand, whose grapes and labels are known worldwide.
In addition to the extraordinary knowledge and human quality of those who make Uruguayan wine, the climate and the soil are a perfect combination for real treasures like Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Tannat grapes to be granted international awards in the latest contests. There is no doubt that the mixture of these factors turn Uruguay into an ideal destination for lovers of good wine!

Our aim is to empower local communities, helping them to develop their own infrastructure for the future. Since 2006, we have been working with Kiva (a well-known Non-Governmental Organisation), providing hundreds of loans to local businesses all over South America.

4) In our pre tour information we provide a range of tips and advice on how to minimise your impact on both local environments and communities.

Chimu Adventure’s internal processes are also structures to create a paperless office and to reduce waste. There are also internal programmes to help staff minimise their carbon footprint such as our staff bike purchase assistance plan which encourages office staff to commute to work via bicycle. Currently almost half of our office based staff commute to work via bicycle.
