Francesco Pisano arrived in Uruguay in 1870 from Italy (the great grandfather of the current owners). The original vineyards were planted in 1914 by his son Cesare. Today, this winemaking tradition continues and they produce some of the country`s most prestigious and best wines with distinctive character. These hand crafted wines are produced in limited quantities and total production at the Pisano family cellars is only 18,000 cases per year across the range of these award winning varietals.
Pisano is a family affair and now owned by the second generation brothers Daniel, Eduardo and Gustavo Pisano. Daniel looks after sales, Eduardo manages the vineyard and Gustavo is head winemaker. Their philosophy is that their wines should reflect the people who make it, as well as the soil and the climate,
