Uruguay

As the forth largest producer of wine in South America, Uruguay is emerging as one of the most exciting wine producing countries in the world. With extensive investment in setting up new wineries and existing producers now gaining recognition in the international markets Uruguay is on the up. With the majority of the vineyards situated around the capital Montevideo and next to the Rio de la Plata (the world widest river; an estuary that leads into the Atlantic ocean) this flat landscape and its proximity to the Atlantic ocean, with the chilly Antarctic currents, along with sometimes fierce winds that blow inland from the sea, give the southern coastal region a cool maritime climate (it’s almost sub-tropical further north) that could be comparable to Bordeaux or Margaret River. This means that the wines from Uruguay tend to differ from those from Chile and Argentina and tend to be less jammy with more acidity and tannins.
