  Uruguay wine
by kyoub

What to buy: Much to our surprise we found Uruguay wine very good. We knew about wine from Chile and Argentina but not Uruguay. That is because they only have small vineyards and they are just now starting to export their wine. The climate is perfect for growing grapes and they grow a species of tannet. Most tannet's are bended but theirs is not.
Wine is sold at most mercados

One day while shopping at the Super Mercado in the wine section, we started talking to a local. He said that he was a beekeeper and asked if we ate honey. I love honey! He happened to have some in his car and sold us a 16 oz jar for $5. It was delicious.
Miguel Backer honey is also sold in souvenir shops.
