Must Visit on Mendoza Winery tours
Feb 2020 • Friends
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.

Benegas Winery ... Wow!!! A must!!!
Feb 2020
Visiting Benegas Winery ... it is right on the road, so to speak, compared to others where the winery is tucked away far off the main road, surrounded by vineyards. This winery is on the main road. First impressions just from the looks can be very deceiving.
A relatively very small winery, producing 300K bottles.
They make quality, premium wines the old-fashioned way. And boy, are they excellent!!!
The guide was excellent, with a excellent command of English, the winery, and on the wine making process.
Was blown away by the wines!!!

Wonderful and informative tour of an historic winery
Jan 2020
We were shown around by an engaging and informative English speaking guide. A very interesting tour of an historic winery followed by wine tasting. We ended up buying a case of fine wine and had it shipped back to the UK! The wine arrived within 3 weeks.
Highly recommended and very convenient if staying in Chacras de Coria.

Bodega tour and wine tasting
Jan 2020 • Family
We just happened upon Bodega Benegas because we were staying down the street but we are so glad we called to book at tour. Our guide Juliana gave a great history and overview of the Bodega family and the facility. The tour was small and personalized with just one other couple and we wandered through the refurbished old winery, ending with a tasting in the cellar in a tastefully decorated old wine vat. We loved the collection of ponchos hanging like tapestries around the bodega. Juliana was knowledgeable and very friendly. What a great experience!

Great Experience Of Wine Tasting
Dec 2019 • Family
We were welcome by the owner. They gave us a tour inside the building facilities. They explained how the wine is processed and showed the wine barrels warehouse.

Later we were to a room for a wine tasting and explained the difference kind of wines. We learned more about wine tasting. It was a very good experience.

Wonderful visit
Nov 2019
We were shown round this lovely bodega by Rosario, who was both charming and informative and spent a good 90 minutes with the two of us. The original bodega dates back well over a century but was left derelict before being restored by the present owners. We started the tour in the wonderful dining room with an enormous table and settees and barbecue area. We then saw some of the old pumps and presses that had previously been used. We then went on to see the fermentation tanks and cellars, all the time being given interesting facts about both the bodega and of course the wine making process. We ended up in a wonderful tasting room down in the cellars (where my wife was lent a poncho to keep warm!) where we tasted four of their wines. We started with a rosé made from Cabernet Franc, which we thought to be very good. We continued with their ‘portfolio’ CF, which was also very good (and which we bought), one of their range of Malbecs which we enjoyed but felt needed more bottle age, and finally their Benegas Lynch CF which was quite powerful but once again we thought too young for immediate consumption. We would highly recommend a visit to this winery.

The Best, wines, history & experience
Nov 2019 • Friends
The one we most liked.
A winery with history. Vineyards with many years that you can feel them in their wines, specially from “Libertad”, like the Cabernet Franc 2008 & 2011, sublime.
The experience was complete, with an “asado” included, making it a unique in our lives.

Amazing century-old property
Nov 2019
Wines from Benegas were extremely enjoyable, as was the tour that taught us about the concrete vats used instead of stainless steel for fermentation. Oh how I would love to stand on the top of one of those vats and take my turn at stirring the skins until the wine was perfectly prepared for being transferred to the oak barrel.

Best winery visit in Mendoza!
Sep 2019
We spent three days wine tasting in Mendoza and out of all the wineries we visited, Benegas was hands down our favorite! There is a lot of history to this place and it was fascinating to learn about it. Juliana was the best tour guide we had in our whole trip. The tour was very thorough and informative, while still being interesting. And she even surprised us with a tasting during our tour from a bottle she had kept hidden in one of the tanks! Each wine we tried was delicious, but it was more than just the wine - the ambience at Benegas really makes the experience very special. We would highly recommend a visit!
