Weekend Tasting: Uruguay


Something that is VinoTeca is proud of is our selection of wines from Uruguay.  This South American nation was settled by Italian and Spanish families that brought their wine making knowledge with them and interestingly the grape Tannat became the star of the country.  Brought by Basque settlers in the 19th century along with Petite Manseng,  Tannat has fallen out of favor of European producers, however it has gained traction in the U.S. specifically in Virginia, Maryland and Georgia.
