Nicolás Catena, the man of the year

Decanter has chosen Nicolás Catena Man of the Year 2009, crediting him with changing the direction of Argentina's wine industry. In the April issue of Decanter, the pioneering winemaker and force behind Argentina's Catena Wines tells Anthony Rose how he was considered 'mad' when in the early 1990s he decided to plant in the Uco Valley, at 1,440 meters. Since then, he has become a leader for experimenting with clones and microclimates, the better to exploit this 'New World El Dorado' in the Andean foothills. 'He has been instrumental in changing the Argentinian wine scene more than anybody else, pushing it towards high quality and intelligent marketing,' said Baron Eric de Rothschild.
