Staff Pick Notes

Patagonia: A place known for its sandy beaches, wildlife, tranquil forests, and adventurous opportunities. Who would have thought that two of its provinces, Rio Negro an Neuquén, would offer optimal conditions for the cultivation of Merlot and Pinot Noir. The arid desert is temperate in climate and irrigated by the Neuquen and Limay Rivers, both of which flow from the Andes and Rio Negro, which, in turn, flows into the Atlantic. Bodega Chacra, located in the Rio Negro Valley, makes a delicious, single-vineyard Pinot Noir, “Barda.” Fall in love with aromas of mature berries, vanilla caramel, and spicy aromas in this well-structured wine. A smooth, long finish will inspire you to buy more than just one bottle next time. Enjoy the “Barda” with your favorite cheeses, charcuteries, fish, roasts, and pastas. Jazmin
