Canelones, is the department of Uruguay that surrounds Montevideo, bordering the departments of San José, Florida and Maldonado. To the south, it has the Río de la Plata. Most of the department is divided up via natural borders such as the Río Santa Lucía (St. Lucia River), the Cuchilla Grande or the Arroyo Solís Grande. Canelones is recognized for its beautiful beaches and resorts, but above all for its viticulture and high quality wines. Producers with a family tradition are waiting for you in their cellars to share their selective wines, winners of international gold medals.
