Bouza 2021 Monte Vide Eu

Producer Info
  • Juan and Elisa Bouza established their winery in 2000 by restoring a historic winery originally built in the 1940’s by Numa Pesquera in the outskirts
    of Montevideo.
  • Over the last ten years Bouza has established itself as Uruguay’s most critically acclaimed producer.
  • Uruguay’s temperate, Atlantic influenced climate sees four distinct seasons and temperatures rarely exceed 93 degrees.
  • Bouza’s Winemaker, Dr. Eduardo Boido, is considered Uruguay’s authority on all things Tannat.
About the Wine
  • Grapes here are sourced from the finest clusters grown in the best quality blocks of each of Bouza’s two Montevideo area vineyards – Melilla, a fairly cool climate site that surrounds the winery, and Las Violetas, a warmer, clay driven site about 15 miles north of the winery.
  • Critics and sommeliers routinely see this as a national treasure, calling it the greatest, most significant red wine being produced in Uruguay.
