We traveled to New York to present the wines from the New World Winery of the Year in Descorchados, an event organized by Patricio Tapia, a renowned figure of the wine sector, who year after year includes in his Guide the best wines of the region.
Bodega Garzón participated in the event along with other 100 wineries, where different outstanding wines were presented. This was a great opportunity to continue presenting Tannat as Uruguay’s emblematic grape, which found in Garzón the perfect terroir to grow.
It is an honor for us to continue participating in these events that exhibit the wines from our region in such an important and fast-growing market such as the United States.
This year we achieved a new milestone with Balasto, Garzón’s iconic wine, which was chosen as the Best Red Wine of Uruguay and Best Red Blend with 96 points.
