Location

Uruguay is a privileged country for wine production, because of its location on the same latitude as the best grape growing areas like Chile, Argentina, South Africa and New Zealand. The geographical location of our country with maritime climate, cold winters and frequently dry summer with hot days, cool nights and misty mornings, all contribute to the production of excellent wines.

Our vineyards and Winery are located in Canelón Chico region, department of Canelones in the South of Uruguay close to the River Plate.

 

Climate

Moderate climate with an average annual temperature 18°C and rainfall is 900mm. With over 500km of coastline, Uruguay has a both a continental and maritime climate. Mild summers and cool nights give significant diurnal temperatures during the growing season.

Seasons are fairly well defined, and seasonal variations are pronounced. Spring is usually cool, and windy, Summers are warm, Autumns mild, with chilly Winters. 

 

History 

Founder of the winery in 1910, Don Próspero José Pizzorno, an Italian and enterprising immigrant, was the inspiration of centenary family tradition.
