Garzon Winery, Uruguay Tasting
July 28, 2018
When Alejandro Bulgheroni and his wife, Bettina, discovered the small village (population of 600) of Garzón in 1999, they saw in it their “little Uruguayan Tuscany”, and they had a dream, a family dream that has come true today: Agroland. Agroland is a 10,000-acre sustainable agriculture business that raises cattle and produces pecans, almonds, honey, and 400,000 liters of award-winning extra-virgin olive oil. Bodega Garzón, the family estate and winery is a part of Agroland.
Bodega Garzón is located near the southeastern coast of Uruguay. It is about 110 miles from the capital of Montevideo. They craft limited production premium wine from their estate vineyards. The estate vineyards are divided into more than 1,150 individual blocks that follow the farm’s topography featuring a distinct terroir of varying altitudes and exposures. While primarily focused on Tannat, Uruguay’s national grape Bodega Garzón works with many other grape varieties including Albariño, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and Viognier.
We welcome Jeff Pedz, regional rep for Blends Imports.
Saurday, July 28th 2-4 pm. No fee tasting.
