Juanico is one of Uruguay’s leading family-owned wineries and its most technically advanced, thanks to its investment in the latest technology. They have a total planted area of 240 hectares and use a cultivation system that respects the environment by using the principles of organic farming, avoiding the use of chemicals to ensure a natural balance in the ecosystem and reduce human intervention.‘Viñedo de los Vientos’ translates into “Vineyard of the Winds” and is located where the river Plate estuary and the Atlantic Ocean meet, providing clean cool ocean breezes and an ideal climate for the maturation of fine wine grapes.
Deep orange in colour, the grapes and pips are left in contact with the juice which gives the wine its colour. Unfiltered and natural, this wine is also cloudy in appearance. Intense, dry and zingy, the palate is bold and intense with a great citrus acidity, and the finish is beautifully complex.
A great transition between white and red wines, Orange wines are also excellent with fully flavoured dishes, be that North African food, curries or Asian Pacific Rim.
