Mendoza Province, Argentina,
Argentina View map

It is located in the Luján de Cuyo region, carril Ardoz (off route 60), 300 meters from its intersection with the south access to Mendoza, and at 5 kilometers from Finca Libertad. This old winery belonged to the family of Gladys Alurralde Norton, who was the mother of Federico J. Benegas Lynch. Agustín Alvarez, Governor of the Province of Mendoza in those years, finished the construction in 1901. It is one of the few historic relics that remain from the old Mendoza of the end of the XIXth century. It was made of adobe with a stone underground cave to stow casks and it has spacious areas to store bottles both in summer and in winter, for temperature variations are minimal. – Description from JelaDragoljevic

  • Benegas Lynch Libertad Estate Vineyard Cabernet Franc Mendoza 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Definitely showing its age with pleasant savory sour cherry and developed molasses and brown sugar notes, a hint of crushed violets and cranberries on the nose. More brown sugar and vanilla bean on the palate with a dusty and dry, raisin and blackberry palate, chewy tannins and roasted espresso beans. This is nearing the end of its run, but is t...

  • Benegas Finca la Encerrada Estate Single Vineyard Malbec Mendoza 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Dirty, dusty aromas of moist earth and clay with toasted vanilla and creamy red currant notes on the nose. On the palate this is bold, bright and vibrant with good fresh acidity and juicy fruit notes of cherry, red currant, raspberry, blueberry and blackberry, nicely textured with layered tannins and a spice box finish of clove, cinnamon and mor...

  • Benegas Lynch la Encerrada Estate Single Vineyard Malbec Mendoza 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Rich, deep black currant and blackberry aromas with a smooth note of vanilla and cinnamon spice. Bold and full bodied on the palate, full of flavor and structure, a bit of black olive and smoky dark chocolate in front of blackberry, black currant and black cherry fruit, notes of bay leaf and an earthy finish.

  • Benegas Estate Single Vineyard Finca Libertad Syrah Mendoza 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Richly aromatic, darkly fruited aromas of black currant and black cherry, pleasant spice and light flower petal notes. Smooth and bold, creamy textured and tannic, with a sheen of vanilla and oak coating fruit flavors of black currant, blackberry and an endless cacao and brown sugar finish. Lots of depth and complexity with very expressive fruit... Read More

    Wine review by ANDRES BELINSKY


  • Bodega Benegas Finca Libertad 2008

    Snoothrank:

    What a bouquet sandalwood, balsam, and exotic spice but rather a letdown in the mouth, at least for now. The tannins are pleading for more aging, and theyre drowning out some very promising berry flavors from these 85-year-old vines. Give it time. (AV 87, http://argovino.com/?p=867) Read More

  • Bodega Benegas Chardonnay Clara Benegas 2011

    Snoothrank:

    You could spend all evening just huffing the mildly smoky hay bouquet from this wonderfully different chardonnay. It's truly addictive, and fortunately a touch of smokiness carries through on the tongue as well, though the apricot and pear flavors become more prominent. For fans of headstrong French whites like Corton-Charlemagne, this is a must... Read More

  • Bodega Benegas Red Blend Don Tiburcio 2009

    Snoothrank:

    What a transformation as it opens, the vegetal bouquet of eggplant and squash turns to black cherries and coffee. Then, in the mouth, theres a velvet-smooth feel that makes the wine almost too easy to swallow. Hold it for a moment to appreciate the exotic fruit flavors of carambola and mangosteen, quite a rarity from an Argentine red, before th... Read More

    Wine review by Lexa978


  • I visited this winery in November 2009 in Mendoza, Argentina. Not only was the wine flavorfull (especially after airing out a bit), the tour of the 100 year old winery was amazing, and the guide, Juliette, was super-friendly, as well. Our wine tasting lasted several hours, and our group loved this winery the most. Thank you, Bengas!
