“Like the best sites in the world, BenMarco Expresivo captures the essence of the best from the Valle de Uco terroir”. ~ Edy Del Pópolo, BenMarco viticulturist
Gualtallary, located at 1,300 m.a.s.l. (4,265 ft.), is one of the coldest appellations within Valle de Uco. With calcareous coated stones and sand, this young region sets the perfect scenario for the boldest grape-growers to experiment. The unique characteristics of this terroir allow us to obtain this blend, full of character, which reveals the utmost expression of the place where the grapes are grown.
