Certified Sustainable, Organic or Biodynamic Green Certified

Region: Argentina / Patagonia

Barda is made from fruit from a 20-year-old vineyard, and also receives fruit from the “Treinta y Dos” and “Cincuenta y Cinco” vineyards. The fruit was harvested by hand and no automated mechanization was used at any stage of the production process. The grapes were hand destemmed and sorted before moving to small cement tanks for maceration with occasional punch-downs to maximize extraction of color, fruit and tannins. The grapes were fermented with natural yeasts, and the wine was matured in oak barrels before bottling.

“I wanted to make pure, authentic Pinot Noir with its own special character—and then I found these forgotten, old vines in Patagonia….”
