About
Bodega Benegas embodies Mendoza’s passion for history and tradition. The building is an historical landmark of Mendoza, built in 1901 by Agustin Álvarez, former Governor of Mendoza. Federico Benegas Lynch bought it in 1999, and made a 5 years restoration, keeping its original design, including the adobe walls and concrete pools, and adding state -of-the-art technology. Surrounded by vineyards, and located in a privileged area of ​​Mendoza, the winery preserves tradition and expresses the Benegas Family’s passion for excellence in wines. Visits to the winery including wine tasting are available. Booking in advance is recommended.

    Entertaining Wine Tasting
    I was lucky to be added last minute to a group visit and wine tasting (thanks again for accommodating) and turned out to be the most amazing experience. Claudio was incredibly knowledgeable about wine and wine making, but most importantly passionated! His stories were extremely entertaining and we all left satisfied. Make sure you try their cab franc and bring a jacket as it gets very cold in the cellar!
    Hello! Thank you very much for your words. We are proud of the team in charge of Hospitality. It is very nice for us to know that you had a good experience in our winery. Cheers! 🍷

    Excellent English winery tour
    Very interesting guided tour of the wine making process together with the history of its beginnings. Our tour guide Adriana has “raised the bar” with regard to her attention to detail and interest in our reasons for visiting this winery, and the pace was comfortable. The option of English was most pleasing. Thank you Adriana 🤗

    Wow
    This is a boutique high end winery with small production. We thought the wines were really excellent - we have been to hundreds of wineries and this is in the top ten. Also, we loved the winery, tasting room and ambience. This is NOT low end wines. We tried multiple wines and they were all great- which is unusual, and then some will knock your socks off!
    Thank you very much for your review! We love that you enjoyed our wines. We hope you come back to visit us soon

The wine tasting experience with Gaby was so incredible. Such a unique story and winery. The cellar tasting is worth every penny. Highly recommend!

Claudio is so funny! He really knows his stuff. And I like his worldly travel experiences and stories! He really took the time to explain everything and then with the wine tasting it was like a whole production with him. Which was adorable. He really loves the wine and teaches you how to like savor it and take your time and really appreciate it. The winery is really cute. I really enjoyed going into the basement and seeing all those barrels! And the little rooms are so adorable, where they store the wine. His English is pretty good and I can tell he speaks many different languages. His stories are great and he really makes you feel welcome at the winery! I really only wanted to drink white so they opened a Chardonnay and a rose for me. Both of them were very good! I tried some of the reds but I really didn't care for any of them. But I'm not a red drinker so...

Benegas is the perfect starting point for learning about the history of wine in Mendoza/Argentina. The wide variety of wines/vintages available for tasting and purchasing will make your head spin.

If Claudio is your guide, tell him what you like and he will equal parts cater to your likes and open your palate to new varietals.

Benegas is a must for any visit to Mendoza. I have been four times and each visit learned something new.

We visited Bodega Benegas in early December. Probably the best wine tour I've experienced. Franco was our guide; although new to the winery, he has been in the business for a long time. His narration of the story behind the winery, one of the first in the Mendoza region, was excellent and gave a full picture of the challenges overcome to build and maintain a successful winery in a desert region. The tasting experience, in the beautiful cellars, was expertly guided, and the wines, though a bit pricey, were very good. Don't miss a peek into the owner's "living/dining room"(he still lives on the premises). Well worth investing a half a day.

We visited this as part of our wine tour visit. Loved this classic and older winery so much that we enjoyed all the wines served during their tastings. It should not be missed if you plan to go to Mendoza.
