Bodega Pisano, Uruguay | BKWine Pick

Uruguay is a comparatively small country in South America with many small family run vineyards and a climate that is similar to that of Bordeaux. There are many interesting wine producers in the country and one of them is the Pisano family, a family that seems to be producing only male – very charming – offspring (“it’s the red wine, you know”).

Today the winery is run by three brothers: Daniel takes care of sales, marketing and exports. Gustavo is the winemaker, and Eduardo takes care of the vineyards. Between them they have eight sons (!) and all want to work in wine. It was grandfather Pisano who created the vineyard in 1914. He came from Liguria and his wife came from the Basque region – quite a common background with Uruguay winemakers.

Try their Rio de los Pajaros Reserve Tannat Merlot for example, or any of their other cuvées.
