Chacras

Mendoza | Argentina

Chacras means “old farmhouse” and is also the name of a town in Mendoza’s Central Region. With its thriving restaurants, butcher shops and artisan markets, Chacras de Coria is the area’s cultural hub. Most local winemakers live in Chacras and it is here that they feel most connected to the land and culture. We craft our Chacras Malbec in an authentic style using 100% Malbec. It is the quality and style of wine the local winemakers choose to drink. Bold, spicy and full-flavored. There are no Cote or Bonarda grapes blended into this wine, which is a very common practice in the export market to achieve price points. As a result of being all Malbec, this wine shows sweeter, purer fruit and is less tannin-dry than its blended counterparts.
