After several years spent investigating different areas, in 2010 Bodega Benegas acquired this 40-hectare (175 acre) farm located in the Uco Valley in the highest part of the district of Gualtallary, Tupungato, at 1450 m.a.s.l. (4750 ft). This micro-region is considered today one of the two most valued areas in Mendoza for the quality of its Malbec.
The soil is composed of a thin layer of sand, then it is pure stone and clay. The desert climate, with more than 300 sunny days and the great thermal amplitude favor the balanced development of polyphenols and acidity, producing wines of great freshness and elegance.
There are currently 20 hectares (50 acres) planted, mostly with Malbec over 8 years of age, in addition to Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot. In 2012, a further 20 hectares (50 acres) of Malbec were planted to accompany the winery's growth in sales.
