Artesana is a small production, single vineyard estate winery in the Canelones region of Uruguay specializing in the rare French grape, Tannat. Made with the highest quality estate grown fruit, by two female winemakers, Artesana’s handcrafted wines showcase Uruguay’s distinctive flavor and this signature grape variety. Originally from France, Tannat produces rich, full-bodied wines with dark fruit and spice aromas and flavors. Named for its high tannin content, Tannat has been found to be the healthiest of red wines with 3-4 times higher antioxidant levels.
