Pizzorno winery has one of the most innovative portfolios in Canelones with Uruguay’s first carbonic maceration Tannat wine. This family producer may be groundbreaking in their winemaking, but they also respect the century-long tradition of the family wine business which is now being assumed by the fourth generation of the Pizzorno family.
Founded by Don Próspero José Pizzorno, an Italian immigrant who arrived in the 20th century, the family winery is now run by the fourth generation of the Pizzorno family. Carlos Pizzorno is currently in charge of the family winery, and is also Winemaking Director, and he is accompanied by his children and family in the daily running of the winery.
With 21 hectares of vineyards surrounding the winery in Canelones, the Pizzorno vineyards are located on a gentle slope with shallow, clay loam soils with calcareous material. The vineyards are managed in a sustainable manner and Pizzorno doesn’t use fertilizers in the soils. Their vineyard management is focused on doing a significant green harvest and careful canopy management in order to achieve full ripeness and the best quality grapes, as they only use estate fruit in their wines. All the grapes are hand harvested and the winemakers carefully choose the harvest date based on sensorial and chemical analysis of the grapes.
