Neighbours of our long-standing partners - Bodega Chacra in Patagonia, southern Argentina, the Noemia estate is jointly owned by wine makers Hans Vinding-Diers and Countess Noemi Marone Cinzano. Set in the extraordinary micro climate of the Rio Negro, which is not only disease free, but enjoys some of the purest light of any place on the planet, the vines here were first planted back in the 1930s. These two properties they are producing what are fast becoming recognised at Argentina's greatest 'old world' wines.
Bodega Noemia de Patagonia is on my short list for the finest winery in Patagonia. Its vineyards are biodynamically farmed and Demeter certified. Jay Miller, www.RobertParker.com
