Bodega Chacra is Piero Incisa della Rocchetta's visionary project that came to life in 2004 in the terroir of Mainqué, in the Rio Negro region of Patagonia. Piero's intent was to transcribe in the wines the purest and freest expression of the climate, microclimate and terroir of these places, so from the beginning he decided to bet on an environmentally friendly agronomic management that follows the precepts of organic and biodynamic agriculture.
An important agricultural project
Bodega Chacra has about 40 hectares of vineyard, planted mostly to chardonnay and pinot noir, much of it old vines planted with free-range vines. To biodynamic management is added a preservation of animal and plant biodiversity, thanks to activities such as beekeeping. Respect for nature is also reflected in the work in the cellar: wine, in fact, for Piero is nothing more than the result of thousands of tiny decisions made day after day in the field. Fermentations are totally spontaneous and filtrations and clarifications are banned in favor of natural decanting, thus guaranteeing in the bottle the same purity and original materiality of the fruit.
