Marichal winery: best winemaking conditions

The Marichal family has been making wines for 80 years and is now exporting wines to the world as a result of hard work and effort. The great-grandparents of the owner settled in the Canelones area and planted the first vineyards here. To get the best winemaking conditions, they built a winery with underground vats in 1938.

The family has come a long way since then and known for making wines with an intense aroma, color, taste, and balance

A colorful bouquet of different grape varieties

Alejandro and Juan Andres are the current generations of the family working here. Their father, Juan Carlos, improved the winery and expanded the vineyards with new grape varietals. The vineyards are cooled by the breeze as they are located close to the sea in Etchevarria. The soil here is loamy and of an eruptive origin. The Mediterranean climate, along with the soil, makes the region ideal for vine cultivation. The grape varieties grown here include Tannat, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc. The best grapes are handpicked and processed to make their world-class red, white, and rose wines.

The whole winemaking process

Grapes are manually handpicked and brought to the winery in 18 Kg. boxes. At the winery, fermentation takes place under controlled temperatures and under different maceration times and sediment contact. The process can be modified to achieve the best expression of the wines. Wines are aged in underground vats at a controlled temperature. After bottling, the wine is allowed to evolve in a small room for some time. Wines are made in small batches here and reflect the qualities of the terroir and the winemaking.
