Establecimiento Juanicó winery is one of the oldest and biggest in Uruguay, with the estate first established in 1740 and making wine from the 1830s onwards with a historic cellar built in the same period. Establecimiento Juanicó’s wine production is also one of the furthest-reaching – you will find in most restaurants in Uruguay under their Don Pascual brand and in top restaurants worldwide with the Familia Deicas brand, owned by the same family.
30% of the wine is aged in second use oak barrels from 4 to 6 months
