BODEGA CATENA ZAPATA
The family winery of revolutionary Argentine vintner Nicolas Catena, Bodega Catena Zapata is widely recognized as the pioneering winery which has shown the international wine community the true quality potential of the Mendoza terroir. International Wine Guru Robert Parker named Bodega Catena Zapata as the only South American winery in his latest book, The World’s Greatest Wine Estates.
Benegas is focused on quality and celebrating its Finca Libertad terroir. They believe in the judicious use of oak, maintaining it as a background component in the wine. Tannins should be balanced and the finish long. Their total production is only 30,000 cases. Michelle Roland says, “Benegas wines have a strong personality which is the result of a unique terroir for its quality and the combination of French and Argentine traditions. The wines reflect Frederico Benegas Lynch’s passion and his constant search for excellence.
