Argentine-style with Brunch at Good Wolf and Decero Wines

Finca Decero

Finca Decero

This event sounds like a very good time.  An Argentine style BBQ plus wines from Argentinean winery Decero.  I have tried Decero’s wines before and have recommended them.  BBQ rates highly with me too, so enjoying both together, would be a great way to cap off our wonderful summer, before the October-November rains are upon us.  Below is the announcement for this event.  Buy your tickets before they sell out!

September 9, 2014, (Vancouver, BC) – It’s nearly fall and there’s the scent of an Argentine BBQ in the air at Good Wolf. Richard Goodine, owner of Good Wolf, and Stephanie Morton-Small, Export Director for Decero Wines, are hosting an ‘asado’ or Argentine BBQ brunch.

This event will be a fun and casual opportunity to taste Decero’s new Remolino’s Vineyard Syrah, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Amano wines. The all-inclusive brunch menu will include roasted pig-on-a-spit, brunch-style accompaniments and other delicious meats.

Brunch starts noon and carries on until 4 pm on Sunday, 21 September. Cost is $30 per person, which includes the meal and paired wines.

Finca Decero

Decero is located in the Argentine foothills of the Andes. These vineyards are one-of-a-kind vineyard, where each vine is nurtured by hand, and the winemaking is without compromise. Decero means ‘from scratch’, and the winery is therefore fortunate to be free from constraints of tradition, allowing for an ‘amano’ or ‘by hand’ approach that is human, sustainable and sensitive to natural differences. Decero wines are distributed in BC by Appellation Wine Marketing.
