Bodega Chacra is located in the Rio Negro Valley of northern Patagonia, Argentina. It was established in 2004 by Piero Incisa della Rocchetta to express the unique climate, micro-climate, and terroir of the Mainqué region in Río Negro. The winery follows biodynamic and organic principles to respect the environment while crafting its wines.
Bodega Chacra focuses on producing premium Pinot Noir made from old vines in their three vineyards. One of their notable wines is the Chacra Treinta y Dos, is from vines planted in 1932 and is known for its structure and aging potential.
The 2021 Cinquenta y Cinco Pinot Noir from vines planted in 1955 notably scored 99 points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
The winery's location in the arid central Argentine desert is tempered by the convergence of the Neuquen and Limay Rivers, which flow from the Andes and meet in the Rio Negro. This unique combination of factors contributes to the distinct character of Bodega Chacra's wines.
Bodega Chacra also produces two Chardonnay's of the highest calibre, made by Jean-Marc Roulot of the famed Meursault domaine.
