In the southern tip of South America, Uruguay is still a secret hotspot for wine lovers. Nestled between Brazil and Argentina, it is somewhat similar to a mild European climate. Despite the challenges of heavy rainfall in winter, sustainable viticulture is firmly on the agenda in Uruguay – at both a local and national level. The moderate temperatures are capable of producing powerful wines that are spicy and concentrated. Famed on Tannat, a wine with high levels of antioxidants and is associated with being good for your heart, also popular; Uruguay’s Albariño is mineral, saline and full of character. Innovation and development for Uruguayan vintners continue to impress wine fanatics; spicy Rhône styles, sophisticated Pinot Noir and elegant Sauvignon Blanc. Definitely, one to watch.
