Mendoza is by far the largest wine region in Argentina. Located on a high-altitude plateau on the edge of the Andes Mountains, the province is responsible for approximately 70 percent of the country’s annual wine production. The French Malbec grape variety makes its New World home in the vineyards of Mendoza, producing red wines of great concentration and intensity.
CLOS DE LOS SIETE
A WORLD ICON
An original story of men passionate about the Argentine land… An inordinate challenge and a unique and innovative concept.
Michel Rolland “discovered” Argentina in 1988.
He was immediately seduced by this country: its environment, its people, the beauty of its landscapes, its culture… and its formidable winemaking potential.
When we think of Patagonia, the photogenic glaciers and mountainous landscapes that have so often been depicted in travel magazines come to mind, and we would hardly associate the remote region with the production of great pinot noir.
But Argentinean Patagonia covers an area of more than one million square kilometres, stretching from the Atlantic Ocean to Chile.
The westernmost part, the most mountainous, is covered with dense forests while the eastern part is much more arid and flat with an important extension dedicated to agriculture. And it is in this area, already known for the quality of its apples, in Mainqué, in the high valley of Rio Negro where Chacra is located.
A REFLECTION OF TRUE RESPECT FOR THE ECOSYSTEM
From the Rio Negro Valley, in northern Patagonia, Bodega Chacra, with its organic and biodynamic vineyards, is one of the most internationally acclaimed Argentine wineries, being the only one in the Argentine context to focus almost exclusively on pinot noir.
