Pizzorno Family is the fourth generation to continue with the same love and respect for nature that started over century ago.

Carlos continues with the same love and respect for nature and carries on a family legacy that hasn't lost a single element of that fine wine tradition and that has adapted to our times with the most advanced techniques in cultivating the vines, elaborating wine and searching for enologist excellence.

Having reconverted both vineyards and winery Pizzorno Family Wines truly represent a rich and prosperous land.

Today Carlos Pizzorno has the leadership of a family that has believed in that land and through the years worked arduous and passionately for their wines.

  • Cruise port visit stop at this nice winery about one hour from the dock. Tasted one of their ‘Reserve’ wines and purchased some for the ship; a nice red that went well with our beef empanadas.

  • Such beautiful place, wonderful experience! The best attention. It's my first experience in winery, I felt very comfortable with the explanation and I can now enjoy the wine in a better way. There was 3-step lunch, with 3 options for each step. Delicious wine and dishes. Very recommedable!
  • Great still wines, excellent sparkling wines especially the Reserva. The vineyards are beautiful and superbly accessible. We had a wine tasting with finger food and the service/explanation was very attentive and entertaining. Keep on doing this great job and continue to improve your wines. Looking forward to drink Tannat 2020 Reserva ;)
  • It was great a great visit! Loved the vineyards, loved the people working there because they are all so kind. The wine is spectacularly good, and no matter which type of wine you prefer, you will love the products of this estate. You can see that they are very knowledgeable about this and true masters of their craft. And they even have their own chef who pairs the wines with his dishes. Awesome! You'll love coming here!
  • This winery was recommended to us and so on a whim we sent a message on WhatsApp and they were able to fit us in that day, even having someone pick us up and take us to the winery. Our guide Joaquin took us around and showed us where the wine is made, his explanations in English were clear and appreciated. During the tasting he gave us more information, and we received a little plate of pairings for the wine. With the large windows the space for tasting looks out onto the beautiful vineyards. Overall a great experience!
  • This is a sleepy vineyard in the Montevidéo region, but well worth a visit if you enjoy wine. However, be aware that it is tiny and not built for vino-turismo (at least when I went in 2017). Their range is particularly notable. The flagship red, Primo (about 1500 pesos), is one of the top 5, or maybe 10, wines in the country every year, with lovely body and flavour. It merits the price, in my opinion. Heavy, but great with a grilled steak or wintry stew. Their mid-range, Z, is reliably well above average, and one that has an excellent price-to-value ratio. Don Prospero, their "table" wine is an absolute bargain. If you can find it, it is about 225 pesos, and ought to be 2-3x that price. The vineyard is family-owned, and they are passionate about value and quality. If you plan to go, I suggest calling ahead, to ensure someone is there, or if you want to have something to eat. Pizzorno is honestly worth the drive!
