Characteristics of Benito Santos Mencía

Benito Santos Mencía is a red wine produced by the winery Bodega Benito Santos in D.O. Monterrey.


Bodega Benito Santos is a winery located in Vilanova de Arousa (Pontevedra), in the northwest of Spain. It is situated just 500 metres from the sea. They have three vineyards of their own, and their philosophy is to produce high-quality wines; they believe that wine is born in the vineyard.
