The winery is in Luján de Cuyo, Province of Mendoza, 20 minutes from the city of Mendoza. The building is an historical landmark of Mendoza, built in 1901 by Agustin ÁLvarez, former Governor of Mendoza. Federico Benegas Lynch bought it in 1999, and made a 5 years restoration, keeping its original design, including the adobe walls and concrete pools, and adding state -of-the-art technology.
The concrete tanks were epoxy painted – an inert material; the doors, and pipes were changed for stainless steel, and a hot-cold system was added. In the production area there are 80 concrete tanks of between 2,000 and 20,000 liters. The total capacity is 800,000 liters, although currently only part of this is being used with the aim of reaching full capacity in the future.
Bodega Benegas produces 50,000 cases of wines per year of which 80% is exported.
