Argentine red wine from Mendoza Argentina, made with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Finca Sophenia is located by the Andes in Tupungato, Mendoza, one of the highest regions in Argentina at 4000 feet altitude. Wines from Tupungato typically impart floral aromas, in particular violets, with long sunny days and very cool nights combining to give perfect conditions for the vine. Finca Sophenia is recognised as one of the top wineries in Argentina. The estate was founded by Roberto Luka in 1997 and is named after his daughters, Sophia and Eugenia. View our selection.
The 130 hectares of vines are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Bonarda, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Torrontes. The winery is equipped with the latest French technology related to the reception, crushing, pressing and vinification processes. Most reds are aged in oak barrels.
