Bodega Noemia is located in Patagonia in the province of Rio Negro near the town of Neuquen where the Neuquen and the Limay rivers converge. The spark behind this project was the discovery of a vineyard which was planted with Malbec in the 1930s. The conditions for grape growing in Patagonia are ideal due to the pristine and unpolluted environment, low rainfall and ample sunshine. The dry conditions ensure there is no problem with disease. This is different from grape growing in Mendoza in that it is lower altitude and the climate is slightly cooler and the growing season is longer.
Partners in the project are Danish winemaker Hans Vinding-Diers and Italian wine personality Countess Noemi Marone Cinzano.
