Concentrated and complex - a wonderful wine.

Finca Sophenia is a beautiful estate located at an altitude of 4,000ft in Tupungato Valley region of Mendoza, this modern winery benefits from a long, cool growing season and strong UV sunlight that helps maximise the aromas and complexity of the resulting grapes. A later ripening of the grapes makes the tannins smooth and velvety. Tupungato sits at the western extreme of Mendoza right at the foot of the Andes mountains with an elevation of 1,200 meters giving benefit to the vineyards from a much cooler climate, abundant sun, and sharp contrast between day and night temperatures. When all the above is combined it allows Julia Halupzcok, the winemaker and consultant Matias Michelini, the opportunity to produce wines with utmost expression. In August 2019 they achieved the sustainability certification in accordance with the Bodegas de Argentina Sustainability, duly certified by Letis, a company dedicated to the certification and auditing of international standards in quality and sustainability.
