About

Product Description:

Bodega Chacra is located in the Rio Negro Valley of northern Patagonia. The property's situation in the arid central Argentine desert is tempered by the confluence of the Neuquen and Limay Rivers, both of which flow from the Andes and converge in the Rio Negro, which in turn flows into the Atlantic.

The climate is dry, with a maximum humidity of thirty percent and an average of seven inches of rainfall annually. This aridity, coupled with the natural barrier of the surrounding desert, results in a complete absence of phylloxera and vine diseases.

The soil of the Rio Negro Valley, an ancient riverbed composed of limestone, sand and clay, coupled with the Valley's pristine pollution-free air and tremendous luminosity, make for ideal conditions to grow Pinot Noir.

In 2004, Piero Incisa della Rocchetta purchased the first of Bodega Chacra's vineyards, a property with an existing, though abandoned, vineyard planted in 1932. This vineyard of gnarled and ungrafted Pinot Noir vines was later added to a neighboring vineyard of vines planted in 1955. Two distinct single vineyard Pinot Noirs are produced, named "Treinta y Dos" and "Cincuenta y Cinco" after the dates of their respective vineyard plantings.

In addition, Piero also makes a Merlot, a rosé of Pinot Noir exclusively for the US market, and a young vine Pinot Noir called Barda. Barda comes from a 25 year old vineyard totaling 11 hectares. Piero produces around 90,000 bottles of Barda.
