Uruguay Wine - Prelude or Preludia?

I've had a couple customers mention a wine (I think I white wine) from Uruguay called either Prelude or Preludia. Does this ring any bells with anyone?

        Interesting. I read where Bodegas Juanicó got a contract from the French to make and sell brandy as "Cognac" for payment for food supplies during WWII.

      2. I've seen both! I guess it's a matter of translation.

        1. Pisano Family Cisplatino Tannat Merlot is one of my favorite wines.

          1. The wine is called Preludio. The bottle sys Familia Deicas. It is a wonderful wine and hard to find.

              I tried some in Feb this year, and it is truly fantastic. It won Vinitaly’sGrand
              GoldMedal in 1996, the first time in the history of Vinitaly that a wine that was
              not Italian or French had won a Grand Gold Medal. You can see more looking at
