About the winery
inca Decero and the estate’s single vineyard is located at 1050m/3500ft in the Agrelo sub-appellation of Luján de Cuyo (GI) in the north western part of the province of Mendoza. Remolinos Vineyard derives its name from the little whirlwind spiral formations of soil which form in the afternoon as the gentle wind lifts the dry soil from the paths of the vineyard into swaying ‘dust devils’. This natural phenomenon draws the attention of our overly protective Lechuza owls in the vineyard who sometimes take flight seemingly to chase them away!

History & Geography
Born of the world-class vision of Swiss owner Thomas Schmidheiny, Finca Decero is an acclaimed wine estate and the location of our one-of-a-kind Remolinos vineyard in Agrelo, Mendoza. In 2000, the decision was taken to start “from scratch” (as Decero means). Unencumbered by history, starting with a blank canvas we were able to make critical early decisions which determined our path towards establishing an exceptional wine estate. First and foremost was the carefully considered site selection of virgin land in the highest part of Agrelo. At an altitude of 1050m/3500ft, this land was chosen for its pristine water quality of glacial meltwater from an underlying aquifer and a unique tapestry of soils unmatched in the surrounding area. In these early days, we extensively analysed the environment both below and above ground and consequently made variety and clone selection specifically suited to areas within the vineyard.
