Finca Sophenia was founded in 1997 by Roberto Luka. With his business partner Gustavo Benvenuto, Luka created a vision for Finca Sophenia focused on producing great wines in a genuinely unique “terroir” in the foothills of the Andes.

Finca Sophenia's wines are known for their elegant and modern style, and their true reflection of the unique terroir of the vineyards.
Finca Sophenia's vineyards, located at 4,000 feet in Tupungato in the Valle de Uco region of Mendoza, span over 130 hectares. The vineyards were implanted with selected French clones of the following varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.
