Roberto Luka, inspirer and main shareholder of Finca Sophenia, holds a recognized background in the wine industry. In 1997, he founded Finca Sophenia together with Gustavo Benvenuto. He named it this way after the names of their daughters: Sophia and Eugenia.
Located in the heart of Tupungato in Uco Valley, Finca Sophenia’s vineyards are planted over 130 hectares of the best virgin soil in South America. The vineyards were implanted with selected French clones, which were grafted onto American rootstocks, and produce the following varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. An area of the vineyard has been reserved for the Malbec plants raised in Mendoza: low-productivity clones that were chosen for their aromatic properties, and whose stalks come from the most representative vineyards of this unique region, where the Malbec finds its clearest expression. The irrigation water comes from the Andes’ thaw. The system that distributes it was structured to obtain small berries and a low production per hectare.
Finca Sophenia’s wines are known for their elegant and modern style, and their true reflection of the unique terroir of the vineyards.
