Finca Decero, once a bare patch of soil in the Argentine foothills of the Andes, is now our one-of-a-kind vineyard, where each vine is nurtured by hand and our winemaking is without compromise. As Decero means ‘from scratch’, we are fortunate to be free from constraints of tradition, and we have developed an ‘amano’ or ‘by hand’ approach that is human, sustainable and sensitive to natural differences. We try to tread lightly in an environment that we have come to know intimately, almost inch by inch. Only in this way can the unique natural attributes of the Remolinos Vineyard, and of Agrelo, shine through in our single vineyard wines, handcrafted from scratch.

2014 DECERO AMANO
The 2014 vintage was one of the coolest in our history. After the temperatures in December and January being above average, the temperatures dropped dramatically in February which, combined with summer rain, delayed grape maturation by nearly one week, as autumn progressed the temperatures remained below average and very cool. These climatic conditions resulted in each of the varieties showing high levels of acidity and very elegant in profile.
