Bennett and Eugenia Sewell opened El Gaucho Winery in 2015, atop a hillside in Spicewood, TX. The Hill Country setting bears a striking resemblance to the parts of Mendoza where their wines are made, with brush lands much like those they lived among in Mendoza.
Once inside, you will notice the decor imported from Argentina. Cowhide chairs, stained wood and hand woven rugs create a warm feel. At the tasting bar is Bennett and his wife, Eugenia, ready to pour you a glass. You can choose a wine tasting flight and authentic Argentine eats to pair with your wine. Or you can take a glass or a whole bottle to the patio to relax and take in the scenery.
El Gaucho Winery is first, a gathering place. The relaxed atmosphere, seen in its location, decor and owners, is meant to create an intimate and cozy getaway. This winery off the beaten path find is just what many Austinites have been looking for. A place to sit back and relax with a glass of great wine.
