Bodega Garzon – Urugyan Wine Master Class by Alexander Griffiths

Located in a fantastic setting 525ft (160m) above sea level in the Garzón hills some 5km from the Atlantic Ocean, Bodega Garzón is considered the most extraordinary wine estate in Uruguay.  With the advice of world renowned enologist Alberto Antonini, the hills of Bodega Garzon were planted with a complex network of vineyards that produce wines with a strong identity, expressing the inimitable character and features of the Garzón terroir.

During the tasting Alexander Griffiths from Bodega Garzon will take the Guild members through a range of seven wines from Bodega Garzon, explaining the planting practices, micro climates and wine making process which combine as making the fabulous Bodega Garzon wines and explain why the world is looking at Uruguayan wines with a whole new set of eyes.
