  • About this winery

    Bodega Chacra is located in the Rio Negro Valley of northern Patagonia, 620 miles south of Buenos Aires, roughly equidistant west to east from the Andes Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean. It is an idyllic region for grape growing notable for the absence of phylloxera and vine diseases. Due to the region's remoteness the air is unbelievably pristine, creating tremendous luminosity and intensity of sunlight. In 2004 Piero Incisa della Rocchetta purchased the first of three vineyards that have now...

    May 2015

    A well-structured pinot noir with a solid core of fruit, firm tannins and bright acidity. Lots of iodine, blueberry, strawberry and floral character. Better in 2016 but delicious already.

    December 2015

    Pure, minerally and powerful, with concentrated flavors of red plum and dried raspberry, loaded with powerful meaty notes. Sandalwood accents linger on the finish, showing caressing tannins.

    The just-bottled 2014 Barda could be the longest-lived of the four vintages I tasted. It looked like a very good vintage early on, with a few warm nights before the harvest. The grapes were picked quite early and vinification was softer than normal. They use the new barrels for Barda as they stopped using new oak for the Treinta y Dos, so there is a very slight note of wood, spices and smoke only noticeable when compared with the older vintages, but almost imperceptible out of that context. The palate is medium-bodied, with very primary flavors, fine-grained tannins that should get polish with a little bit of time in bottle. A very complete Pinot from Río Negro.

    November 2016

    Barda is the cheapest of the Pinots from this boutique operation, but it's often the most enjoyable in its youth. This has more tannin than some vintages, adding backbone to the supple red fruits.
