  • 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.

  • Tasting notes

    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.

  • Winemaking notes

    The vineyards, planted in 1990, grow on slightly sandy soils. As with all of the Bodega Chacra vineyards, Barda’s vineyards are ungrafted and massale selection yielding over 2 kilos per plant. It is fermented at low temperatures in round cement tanks, with natural and unfiltered indigenous yeasts.

    June 2017

    A fantastic Barda with dried strawberries, orange peel and tangerines. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a long and flavorful finish. 60% fermented and aged in cement tanks. Tight and beautiful.
