A brief history
Benvenuto de la Serna is located in the premier wine region of Valle de Uco, Mendoza, where our single-estate vineyard stands 3.400 feet above seal level at the foothills of the Andes Mountain. The alluvial soil in this area is known for being extremely stony with predominately high sand content, which allows the roots of the vines to reach incredibly deep into the ground while offering excellent drainage. Because of its semi-desert climate, the temperature spread between day and night in Valle de Uco can be up to 50 degrees. This high elevation and exposure to hot desert sun, develops fruits with ripe, rich flavors and deep colors, yet maintains a balanced acidity – the prized qualities of Valle de Uco grapes.
