Last week in Mendoza the Wines of Argentina competition took place, the most important and prestigious international competition for Argentine wines in the world.  This year, 734 wines were judged over 3 days by 12 top international winemakers.  Out of all the wines, 18 wines were awarded the highest “Trophy” honor, and only 3 wines in $50+ categories.  The Red Blend Trophy honor went to Finca Decero Amano 2009!












After the competition the judges held a seminar discussing the tasting, and illustrated with their explanations why Finca Decero did so well: they believe that Argentina’s wines need to reflect their regions, and that oak, alcohol and ripening need to be in balance as Argentina’s wine industry moves forward.

Finca Decero also received awards for:

  • Decero Malbec 2010 won Gold (only 70 Gold winners)
  • Decero Petit Verdot 2009 won Silver
  • Decero Cabernet 2009 won Bronze
