Artesana is a small production single vineyard estate winery in the acclaimed Canelones region of Uruguay specializing in Tannat, Tannat blends and Zinfandel, the only Zinfandel produced in Uruguay. Made with the highest quality estate-grown fruit, Artesana’s iconic wines showcase Uruguay’s distinctive terroir and its signature varietal Tannat. Artesana is the first American-owned winery in Uruguay, partnered with two award-winning Uruguayan women winemakers.
Uruguay produces dynamic and award-winning wines of outstanding quality. Differing from its South American counterparts, Uruguay is a country of small-scale, family-owned wineries with a European winemaking tradition. The coastal-Atlantic climate is often compared to Bordeaux’s, producing wines with well-balanced levels of alcohol and acidity. Tannat, brought from France in the 1870s, is the flagship varietal of Uruguay and produces rich, full-bodied wines with ripe fruit flavors and an exotic, spicy character.
