Passing the vibrant pink Wines of Argentina sign and the monstrous Concha y Toro booth in the South American wines section of Vinexpo 2012, I ran into the Wines of Uruguay stand and was surprised to see how large it was. I spoke about this to Daniel Pisano, co-owner of Pisano Family Vineyards, the #1 top distributed Uruguayan winery in the Brazilian market, according to our Market Report.
He explained that there were 12 Uruguayan wineries at Vinexpo this year and that he he believes they are a good representation of the region. He also lets us in on what characteristics of Uruguayan wines (especially Tannat) makes them popular in the Asian market and walks us through the wines that he brought to showcase at the expo.
