Altos de La Ballena

On La Ballena mountain range, just 15 kilometres from the coast, ocean air combines with mountain soil creating a special 'terroir'. The stony ground is favourable for the harvest of grape varieties such as Merlot, Tannat, Cabernet Franc, Syrah and Viognier, which are used for a limited production of high quality wines.

How to get there from Punta del Este: Km 16.400 of Highway 12.
