the first Uruguayan wine to be awarded this recognition.

"It's truly incredible to see Bodega Garzón accomplish so much at such a
young stage in its evolution," said Bulgheroni. "We started producing
wine in 2010 and inaugurated the new Bodega Garzón winery in March 2016
with the vision to create terroir-inspired estate wines that reflect the
land's purity and embrace the spirit of the Uruguayan wine county and
culture. With that goal in mind, we will continue to strive for
greatness in creating exceptional wines and unparalleled experiences."

Antonini which debuted at La Place de Bordeaux in France and events
across the globe, including in New York, Hong Kong, Sao Pablo, London
and Beijing.

Club, an exclusive, members-only venue and South America's newest
private club, located within Bodega Garzón's framework, which was

in Bordeaux, France; a summer banquet on the Thames; the annual rally
for the Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts' Club; and the World's 50 Best
Restaurants' 15th anniversary celebration in Barcelona, Spain.

championship 18-hole golf course located on Bodega Garzón's 10,000-acre

for Bodega Garzón."
