It All Starts With A Love Story

The story of El Gaucho Winery is one of finding your calling and finding love along the way.  That was how owners Bennett and Eugenia Sewell began their journey.  He was a traveler falling in love with the wine and culture of Mendoza, Argentina and she was a local sommelier and consultant.  After returning to Texas from his inspiring trip, Bennett decided to hire Eugenia as a consultant and begin the journey he felt was his.  He later bought two vineyards, Finca Austin and Finca La Passion, where they formulated wines for their labels, Tierra de Gaucho and Estado Natural.  They soon found they had much more in common than just a mutual love of wine and a marriage proposal soon followed.  Later on they would move to the Texas Hill Country and open El Gaucho Winery in 2015 where they are your friendly and welcoming hosts.
