Mil Piedras wines are made with estate-grown fruit from a single vineyard located in one of the most prestigious wine regions of Argentina, Valle de Uco. Benvenuto de la Serna, maker of Mil Piedras, is a small family winery owned by Silvio Benvenuto (Italian immigrant) whose mission statement is to “make 100% estate and 100% handcrafted wines."
The vineyard is located 1100 meters above sea level. Tucked away in the western most-end of Mendoza, the region has semi-desert climate with constant bright sun shines and very little rain fall. This region has the most pristine environment for water supply, essential for the vines in the desert, which comes from fresh snowmelt off the Andes mountains directly next to the vineyard (literally).
