Decero, meaning ‘from scratch,’ was born of a bare patch of land and a family’s love affair with wine. Winemaking in Thomas Schmidheiny’s family goes back to his grandparents in Switzerland and, just as Napa had inspired his mother Adda in the 1970s, so too did the Agrelo sub-appellation in Mendoza capture the heart and mind of Thomas when traveling over the Andes into Argentina 20 years later. In Agrelo, perhaps now considered the source of Argentina’s finest red wines, Thomas instinctively knew that he had found the place to continue the family legacy and to handcraft wines whose allure would lie in being true to their origin. Once a desolate piece of land in the foothills of the Andes, absent of everything but shrubs, Finca Decero is now a one-of-a-kind vineyard where each vine is nurtured by hand and the winemaking is without compromise.

A singlevineyard blend of 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Malbec, 19% Petit Verdot, and 10% Tannat aged 18 months in French oak (40% new). The name refers to the dust devils that keep the vineyard dry and the predatory owls that protect the vines. Aromas of iron, grilled meat, and cherry cola lead to a plush, pretty palate of fennel and red fowers with fruity tones of raspberry and plum.
