The Bodega Bouza plots are located in two very traditional wine-growing regions in the south of Uruguay, close to the sea. Their vineyards are characteristic for being very fertile, well-drained, with differentiated layers of soils and the presence of calcium carbonate, which make them suitable for making concentrated wines with long cellaring potential. The climate has great similarities with Bordeaux and the proximity of the ocean moderates the summer temperatures, which rarely exceed 34°C.
Using a very specific system for their ‘Parcela Única' wines; the vineyards are divided into parcels of about half a hectare and each one is identified with a letter and a number. “A” is used for their plots in the vineyards located in Melilla and Las Violetas and “B” for the plots located in the Canelones region. Each plot is cared for independently and follows separate winemaking processes, using small tanks without mixing any grapes, to precisely track the result from each piece of land. This technic enables the intimate understanding of each plot, resulting in the production of wines with the specific terroir characteristics. The grapes planted are Albariño and Chardonnay for the whites and Merlot, Tempranillo and Tannat for the reds.
