URUGUAY

With more than 200 wineries, Uruguay is the new world’s undiscovered wine jewel. Some vineyards are over a hundred years old run by fourth and fifth generation winemakers.

The commercial production of wine began officially in the year 1870 after French influences introduced Tannet (by far, Uruguay’s most important grape) along with others. In the 1970s the Uruguayan wine industry turned its focus toward the production of finer, higher quality wines and in 1988 the Vitivinicultural National Institute’s (INAVI) work with State growers to modernize the industry and to help with economic plans marked 20 years of improved quality and modernization.
