  • About the vineyard

    "We are privileged to be pioneers and have contributed in the development of viticulture in this region" said Roberto Luka, founder and owner of Finca Sophenia.

    Gualtallary is a district in the department of Tupungato in the Uco Valley, Mendoza.

    Tupungato has an ideal microclimate for the slow ripening of the grapes, with a thermal amplitude that allows a great concentration of aromas and flavors to be achieved.

    The small terroir of Gualtallary, in turn, gives the wines one of the most unique profiles in Argentina and distinguishes them as among the freshest and most mineral in the country. The combination of altitude, cold weather and sandy and stony soils results in ideal natural acidity that gives intense and elegant wines that stand out for their good structure and unique tannic structure.
