A lot of the success of their wines is also
attributed to Uruguay's ideal weather, the high quality of the water and the natural
state of its soils. Uruguay has earned the fame as the PAIS
NATURAL (Natural Country).

ADDITIVES IN WINE
No sulfites added to H. Stagnari wines
Some of us like to drink wine
because of its medicinal characteristics. Some drink it because
they are experts and others because they just plain love
Whatever the reason, nobody wants
harmful chemicals or excessive amounts of sugar.
Even when spending $90 for a bottle
of wine, one must wonder why the label on the back of the bottle
has the disclaimer "CONTAINS SULFITES" (usually close to
100 ppm and up to 300 ppm). Even a $50 bottle of organic
wine may have the same disclaimer.
The main reason we spend the extra
money for the organic wine is precisely to stay away from harmful
chemicals. However, we have been conditioned to accept harmful
additives in wines as a normal occurrence.
There are naturally occurring
sulfites in every wine making process, which amount to about
10ppm. The key here is naturally occurring, not an added
chemical. However, the majority of the wine makers add
sulfite to their wine, to improve their taste and as a
preservative to avoid oxidation and preserve the flavor of the
wine. If sulfite amounts found in the wine exceed 10ppm, then a
disclaimer "CONTAINS SULFITES" must be added to the
label. What they fail to enforce is stating on the label exactly
how much sulfite has been added, so we can be made aware of what
we are drinking and decide for ourselves if we are going to drink
it. Perhaps it is time to add NUTRITION FACTS to wine bottles, as
it is required for all other foods.
If you suffer from allergies,
asthma, you should avoid wines that contain added sulfites (and good
luck finding one that doesn't). But this doesn't mean that those
with no present condition are safe. Still many believe that if
they are not allergic, they won't be affected by sulfites.
The internet has a lot of
information on the subject, and some websites even suggest that
Sulfites are necessary additive for any wine. Some say they are
safe in moderate quantities, some say they are not. Deep inside,
we all know the long term effects of any chemicals in our food and the
specific illnesses they are related to. Whether there is an
allergic reaction or not, the long term health implications are
The fact is, that H. STAGNARI FINE WINES
are pure, natural and healthy. No chemicals are used, no Sulfites, no sugar, they are plain good for you.

IN THE WORLD"
Just like the World
Series Champion is without a doubt the greatest ball team in the World,
the winner of the World Title in Wine receives the title of
"Best wine in the World".
Our wines have achieved
that distinction in 2006 and 2007, as World Champions of all Red Wines. They have
been awarded the prestigious VINOFED trophy.
International Wine Competition is the most important and the oldest
in the world and sanctioned by the OIV.
THE TANNAT GRAPE
Originally found in France, the Tannat
grape was introduced in Uruguay in the 19th Century by Basque
settlers. The Tannat wines in Uruguay are characterized by more
elegant and softer tannins and blackberry fruit notes. These wines
tend to be dense purple-red in color, with significant tannins and a
wonderfully spicy finish. Try TANNAT today, and find out what all
the buzz is about.
BODEGA H. STAGNARI
Hector Stagnari himself, personally
handcrafts the finest red wines, year after year, using family recipes
dating back to 1925. The grape is hand inspected, and only those
that are intact and of perfect ripeness are selected. You won't
find Hector behind a desk in an old stuffy office. He is out in the
vineyard every day, from the moment the roster starts singing until
sunset. In any given Vintage, Hector
will not release a wine unless he can confirm its quality.
IF YOU HAVE ALLERGIES
H. Stagnari if your allergies don't allow you to drink red wine. You will
be pleasantly surprised.
