Uruguay’s wine industry began in the 1870s when the grape Tannat, originating from the Madiran region of France, was introduced by Basque immigrants. Adapting perfectly to the climate and soil, Tannat has become Uruguay’s varietal, producing rich, full-bodied red wines with dark fruit and spice aromas and flavors, and great structure and aging ability.

Clos Amador Brut Délicat Reserva and Rose Tendre, White and Rosé "Cava" from the Spanish region of Catalonia. 

Portuguese Vinho Verde

Pisco sour is a cocktail prepared with pisco and lemon juice. The name comes from the union of the words "pisco" (a grape brandy that comes from Peru) and "sour" (in reference to the family of cocktails that use lemon as part of their recipe).
