WINE INFORMATION

Trigger to the project of Bodega Noemia de Patagonia was the finding of an ancient Malbec vineyard, that was planted in the 30's somewhere in the Rio Negro Valley. Partners in this project, Italian wine producer Countess Noemi Marone Cinzano and Danish winemaker Hans Vinding-Diers found the place and the valley's microclimate perfect for wine grape growing. The magnificence of the Rio Negro Valley, which is influenced by two rivers deriving from the Andes, the Neuquen and the Limay, had already been discovered in 1828 by British colonists, who decided to dig channels to irrigate the valley and create an oasis in the middle of the desert. It was then and is still today famous for its excellency in pears and apples production. In the early 1900's, the immigrants then introduced the first vineyards, which mainly consisted of French varietals.

Grapes for this wine come from vines planted in an alluvial, old river bed, with sandy gravel, limo and limestone. Destemmed grapes go into stainless steel vats, and are fermented in temperature controlled tanks with commercial yeast with very little extraction. The wine is aged for eleven months in 40% old French barrels and 60% in stainless steel vats.
