Soil - Terroir - Wines ... Bodegas
Uruguay is home to a variety of soils, terroir, strains, micro climates, and internationally awarded wines and bodegas. Even if Uruguay is mainly known for its beef, it is a wine country, and the only one with an Atlantic climate, which has allowed it to develop balanced wines with unique and internationally recognized characteristics. Uruguay, the fourth most important wine-producing country in South America, grows a variety of grapes : Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Chardonnay, Albariño, Pinot Noir, but none more celebrated than Tannat, which has earned Uruguay a recognized place in the world of wine, and innumerable international awards. Over the years Tannat has become the quintessential Uruguayan grape and wine, representing about 40% of the country's entire wine production.

Bodega Oceánica José Ignacio. The real creator of Bodega José Ignacio’s wine is our land " Marcelo Conserva & Natalia Welker " owners of Bodega José Ignacio. Our vines grow on the soft hills of clay soil that overlie a crystalline basement, constantly aired by the oceanic breeze, a vital element that nurtures the healthy development of our fruits and the palatable acidity of our wines. The vineyards are located less than five hundred meters away from the winery. All wine-making processes are handmade with great care and detail. The knowledge of a valuable oenologist who acts as interpreter of the fruit essence and brings out the best of each grape, joins our passion to produce excellence in wines that express a great sense of oceanic origin.
