History of the winery
Federico Benegas Lynch grew up accompanying his father in wine making in El Trapiche. After the dissolution of the company, he goes to live in Buenos Aires but his passion for Mendoza and wine made him return in search of recovering the family legacy.
This is how in 1999 he has the opportunity to buy Finca Libertad, an old vineyard planted by his great-grandfather Don Tiburcio, which was the basis of the project to return to produce wines of excellence, the BENEGAS wines. Two years later, he bought an old winery located in LujĆ”n de Cuyo, which he completely restored following 19th century architecture and incorporating the most modern technology.
