We came unannounced, but the guard at the gate was nice enough to check of there was time for a visit. We were welcomed by Marcelo Gil, who is a knowledgeable and lovely young man, and who provided us with a wonderful tour and tasting.

Made a reservation weeks in advance. Security guard didn’t want to let us enter and insisted on speaking Spanish with us even when we explained in Spanish we didn’t speak it well and had a reservation. When we eventually got inside no one was there to do a tasting. So we had to leave. What a shame sophenia wasted our time and money

We were extremely underwhelmed. We have been to a lot of wineries and wine tastings throughout the world. These red wines were undrinkable. No explanation of the wines and what we should be smelling and tasting. They wines tasted like straight alcohol with no flavor. We were recommended this by a couple of people and maybe we went on a bad year? We were very shocked and disappointed that they would serve wine that tasted as bad as it did. Do not waste your money here, please.

I really enjoyed the tour of this bodega. They are a hands on operation from harvesting the grapes to wrapping and boxing the bottles. There was such a personal feel to the operation.
The tasting was surprising with sampling entry level wines to the icon Roberto Lo wine. I'm glad we started our weekend at Sophenia.

We joined a small group on a Saturday morning for a tour and tasting. One of the guests suggested we taste the Malbecs blind, which was a lot of fun. Their wines are very good and very affordable, worth picking up.

We enjoyed our visit here along with good tasting wines. The guide was very good. This is clearly a very large operation. Their tasting room is different and I may have like it more during the winter. It was in a basement type of room and I would have preferred to be in the fresh air like we were in some other wineries. Still a very good experience and provides the viewpoint of a large operation vs a small operation.

We had a little trouble finding where to enter and finally someone came out and lead us back to where we started the tour with a very friendly and informative Sophenia employee. It actually was one of my favorite tours and tastings during our stay in the Uco Valley.

The tasting was intimate and wine enjoyable. She even let us try some of their reserves. Tasty and memorable I hope I’m able to find the Malbec and Cab they were a highlight for sure.

Make sure this is on your list of stops when tasting in Mendoza it’s an undiscovered place

An outstanding exposure to Mendoza wine making. This is a picturesque production winery that actually produces decent wine. Definitely worth a visit.

A big thanks to Carla for a terrific tour and wine tasting at Finca Sophenia. Sophenia is a truly special place to visit that provides more insight into the winemaking process than most wineries I've visited and Carla really personalized our tour and tasting to make it a special event. Their Malbec is terrific and their Cabernet Sauvignons are exceptionally. Make sure to try across all three of their brands: AltaSud, Reserve, and Synthesis. We got to see a lot more of the operations here including their bottling and labeling process, as well as pumping the wines from the vats to the barrels. We had so much fun and Carla was extremely kind and informative. Highly recommend a stop in if you are visiting Uco Valley.
