One of the biggest wineries in Uruguay, but still a family business, the Juanico winery is reckoned to be the most technically advanced in Uruguay, thanks to its investment in the business and its use of the latest technology.
At present the Juanico winery has a total planted area of 240 hectares, or 575 acres, of its own vineyards. Juanico uses a cultivation system that respects the environment by using the principles of organic farming, avoiding the use of chemicals, to achieve a natural balance in the ecosystem and thereby reduce human intervention.
The harvest is 100% picked by hand in the early hours of the morning to take advantage of this cool and fresh part of the day.
The selection of grapes is done at the moment of picking, rejecting those bunches and grapes that are not prime quality. In some cases this selection goes through a second process on the sorting table at the winery, just before the grapes pass through the destalking machine.
A high quality strategy, a strong industrial investment through which state of the art winemaking technologies are implemented, allow Juanico to develop unique wines.
This is an exciting new grape variety made by crossing Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache.
