About the Winery

Marichal_family_portrait_cropBodega Marichal is headed by winemakers Juan Andrés and Alejandro Marichal. They are a family-owned, Uruguayan winery originally established in 1938 and now they are into their third and fourth generation of family winemaking. The vineyards are located at an ideal latitude in the department, or province, of Canelones (15 miles north of Uruguay’s capitol, Montevideo) where the warm weather, cool Atlantic breezes and deep clay soil allow grape varieties like Tannat to thrive and achieve unique character.

The Wines

WP_MARICHAL_TANNATMarichal Premium Varietal Tannat
The Tannat grape has been transformed by the Uruguayan environment to become the country’s prominent variety. Marichal winemaking methods produce a Tannat without any wood or oak treatment resulting in a Tannat that is uniquely approachable with softer, velvety tannins and aromas of blackberries and dark fruit. The wine is a direct expression of its terroir and the climate where it thrives.

Marichal Reserve Collection Tannat

100% Tannat, the most important grape in Uruguay, where ideal conditions result in wine of great expression and personality. The fruit is picked by hand from Marichal family vineyards, fermented and aged 12 months in oak on the family property and in Canelones. The Tannat wines produced there are characterized by more elegant and softer tannins and blackberry fruit notes.
