ABOUT THE WINERY
In Patagonia, a “chacra” is a special piece of land destined to pomology. At the same time, chacras are vital energy centers that provide us with the ability to connect with the whole universe, with everything living and vibrating. In its nourishment, in the marriage with every meal, wine is the companion of pleasure and sensitivity. Wine is intimate and touches all our senses. Chacra aims to enhance that connection.
Chacra was founded in 2003 by Piero Incisa della Rocchetta.
At a wine tasting in New York City, Piero discovered a pinot noir that brought his attention to the Río Negro region of Patagonia, Argentina. After his first visit, he knew this would be the home of his new passion.
The quest for a unique terroir was over: with ungrafted vines dating back to 1932, planted by massale selection, with grapes of immense quality, vibrant luminosity, pure water, strong winds, Mainqué had the potential to make the wines of which he dreamed. Here, Piero could make wines that could truly convey the taste of “a place on the planet.”
