Germán Bruzzone, winemaker of the year

We are very proud to announce that Germán Bruzzone, winemaker of Bodega Garzón, was chosen as Winemaker of the Year by Patricio Tapia in his renowned Guía Descorchados 2022. A well-deserved award given to one of the most important winemakers in the country who, together with Alberto Antonini, Italian winemaker and consultant winemaker at Garzón, carries out the production of the different lines of wines that are faithful exponents of Garzón’s Terroir.

Germán, born into a family dedicated to winemaking, began working on the Garzón project from the beginning, more precisely in 2009 after being selected among several candidates.

This award is a milestone for Bodega Garzón, and a reward for the work that Bruzzone and his team carry out throughout the year to produce wines that are awarded in the five continents and recognized by the most prominent critics of the wine-making sector.

This year had already started with great scores by Tapia’s guide for Garzón wines, among which stand out the 97 points and mention as Best Red Wine of Uruguay for Balasto, and 96 points and mention as Best Tannat of Uruguay for Petit Clos Tannat.
