Uniquely Argentinian is this special and distinctive winery, situated at 1200 metres above the sea level at the foot of the majestic Andes, where the ideal microclimate of Tupungato produces such gratifying and electrifying wines.
Taste prestige wines from Argentina
Fina Sophenia has achieved much prestige and recognition all around; whether it be Europe, Americas or Asia. Roberto Luka founded the winery in 1997, naming it Finca Sophenia after his partner’s daughter, Sophia, and his own daughter Eugenia. For location, he chose Gualtallary, a district that is located in the department of Tupungato in the Uco Valley, Mendoza –– itself one of the most fertile and prestigious places in Argentina for the production of wines.
Here, you will find a perfectly balanced combination of height, cold climate and sandy and stony soils that bring forth an ideal natural acidity
The wide range of grapes, including Malbec, Merlot, Cabenet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Ancellotta, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc cultivated in the terroir of Gualtallary produce the freshest and lively red, white, rosé, sparkling and dessert wines that carry the name of Finca Sophenia.
Irrigation with water from Andes
Extending over 130 hectares, the team of Sophenia winery continues to develop without compromising the environment, favoring the development of the community in which they plant the vines. The irrigation water comes from the melting of the Andes. These wines are long-lived, complex and have a high fruit concentration and truly stand out for their exemplary structure and singular tannic texture.
