Who We Are

Two great friends, Dirk and Paul, and a shared whim: to create a winery that produces few bottles of the highest quality. This is how Bodega El Capricho was born.

With only 23 years, Dirk arrives to Argentina from his native Germany in search of new experiences. He meets Paul, who soon becomes a friend, a mentor and family. Today, over 30 years after that meeting, they fulfill a shared dream in a field of 200 hectares located in the Central region of Uruguay, in Villa del Carmen, Durazno. 7 exclusive hec-tares of vineyards constitute the beginning of this small family winery.
