Every wine that is produced by Vinedo de los Vientos, comes from the rich heritage & traditions of their Family, and the inspiration of their winemaker, Pablo Fallabrino.
Their goal is quite simple; take the best from the soil & history, and translate it into our grapes and wines. They like to play with flavors and old techniques to create and craft outstanding wines.
Pablo takes the long run looking for wines "out of the box".

The Viñedo de los Vientos property has been in the Fallabrino family since 1947. They now have 17 hectares of vines.
The varieties they produce are:
RED: Tannat, Cabernet Sauvignon, Ruby Cabernet, Nebbiolo and Barbera WHITE: Arneis, Gewurztraminer, Chardonnay and Moscato Bianco.

Viñedo de los Vientos translates into Vineyard of the Winds, is located where the River Plate estuary,(the largest in the world) and the Atlantic Ocean meets, which provides clean cool ocean breezes and the ideal climate for the maturation of fine wine grapes. They practice a minimal interventionist viticulture, respecting the environment and the native wild life.

Vinedo de los Vientos translates into the Vineyards of the Winds, as the vineyard is located at the intersection of the River Plate estuary and the Atlantic Ocean. The clean cool breezes provide an ideal climate for third generation winemaker Pablo Fallabrino to hand craft his wines. The son of Italian immigrants from Piedmont, he inherited the winery in 1995, and has impressed the critics with his dedication to making wines with the best of modern & traditional methods. Pablo often goes through the old family wine making logs and books for wine making inspiration. He practices minimal interventionist viticulture, respecting the environment and the surrounding wildlife.

Uruguay's wine culture began with the influx of Basque settlers in the last hlf of the 19th Century. These hardy folk brought with them the varietal Tannat, which they found to ripen far differently in this new, warmer & wetter climate. Largely a mass-production wine country, today finds several innovative younger producers taking advantage of the cooler regions to the south, where Antarctic air patterns provide cool nights and help drying the crop, thereby preventing the wet weather to rot the fruit.
