In 2004, Piero Incisa della Rocchetta's ambition was to produce great Argentinian wines that would provide the purest expression of the microclimate and terroir of Mainqué, in the Rio Negro region of Patagonia. To achieve this, he founded Bodega Chacra and turned to biodynamic and organic farming. Thus, with the greatest respect for the environment and thanks to a precise knowledge of nature, this bold enthusiast produces pure, delicate, floral wines with an intense minerality.
The name "chacra" in Patagonia refers to pomology, the cultivation of edible fruit, and thus highlights the predestination of the estate's land for viticulture. The chacras are vital energy centres and the wine, by lending itself to joyous and memorable get-togethers, embodies this idea of connection to one's senses.
Bodega Chacra is located in the heart of the Rio Negro region, a land born from the junction of two rivers called Limay and Neuquén. The climate is windy and dry. Nevertheless, the irrigation canals dug by the British colonists at the dawn of the 19th century make it a lush green environment suitable for agriculture. The estate’s 24 hectares of vineyards are entirely composed of Pinot Noir.
Lunita Pinot Noir 2021 by Bodega Chacra is a Patagonian wine that stems from a 1.5-hectare vineyard and comprises biodynamically-grown grapes.
