    Founded by Don Próspero José Pizzorno, an Italian immigrant who arrived in the 20th century, the family winery is now run by the fourth generation of the Pizzorno family. Carlos Pizzorno is currently in charge of the family winery, and is also Winemaking Director, and he is accompanied by his children and family in the daily running of the winery.

    With 21 hectares of vineyards surrounding the winery in Canelones, the Pizzorno vineyards are located on a gentle slope with shallow, clay loam soils with calcareous material. The vineyards are managed in a sustainable manner and Pizzorno doesn’t use fertilizers in the soils. Their vineyard management is focused on doing a significant green harvest and careful canopy management in order to achieve full ripeness and the best quality grapes, as they only use estate fruit in their wines. All the grapes are hand harvested and the winemakers carefully choose the harvest date based on sensorial and chemical analysis of the grapes.

    A deep, full red with notes of wild berries accompanied by tobacco, cigar and spice. An excellent complex red.
