Bodega Bouza – Uruguay

 

THE VINEYARDS

The property consists of two vineyards. One is beside our winery in Melilla, 5 kms from Santa Lucia River. The other is in the region of Las Violetas, a traditional vine growing area, 39 kms north of downtown Montevideo and the River Plate. At Melilla vineyard, which is beside our winery, we have about 5 hectares of young Albariño, Chardonnay, Merlot and Tannat vines. At Las Violetas vineyard we have about 12 hectares of the following varieties, Albariño, Chardonnay, Merlot, Tempranillo and Tannat of which four hectares are between 16 and 30 years old and the rest are young vines. These vines were selected for high quality and low yields.     Of our own vines, we only use those that achieve adequate quality standards. We aim to have well ventilated fruit, with good diffused light, along with a careful guide of the canopy with maximum sun exposure.     In the total production of wines of Uruguay, Bodega Bouza is present with about 90.000 bottles a year.
