Bodega Garzón’s delightfully crisp and expressive rosé of Pinot Noir comes from a zone of Uruguay that is quickly becoming the new Côte d’Azur of the Southern Hemisphere, so a rosé is of course a natural fit and de rigeur for all poolside lounging at your compound, real or imaginary. This one smells like crushed raspberries, grenadine, grapefruit peel and fresh herbs. So dry and bright, keep an eye on that bottle - it will vanish in a flash from your cabana.
Blessed with pristine views of the Atlantic, an unspoiled ecosystem, and dusty, charismatic back streets, the Punta del Este zone of Uruguay is very quickly becoming a new Côte d’Azur for discerning travelers of means. Nearby, wine entrepreneur Alejandro Bulgheroni established Bodega Garzón, a sustainable, earth-friendly wine estate, restaurant, and private club. Wind and solar power provide 40% of the property’s energy needs, and world-renowned chef Francis Mallman is the Ambassador and Culinary Director for the estate. Quite simply, no expense has been spared to make this winery a showpiece of the southern hemisphere. Blessed with fast-draining granite sands called “balasto,” these rolling hills are heaven for wine grapes, especially Tannat. We were also thrilled to discover some delightful reds like Petit Verdot and Marselan, as well as award-winning Albariño that is some of the best made outside of Spain. We invite you to experience just how sumptuous and luxurious Uruguayan wine can be!
