The premium wine making process takes place in fantastic vineyards that have been planted with different varieties and a sophisticated drip irrigation system. Constant research by enologists and agronomists results in the specific selection of areas where each variety reaches its fullest expression.
A unique terroir
Soils are really pervious and vine roots grow deeply in search for nutrients and minerals.
A Pleistocene terrace, an alluvial-colluvial fan and a modern fluvial terrace stand out from the landscape. Every type of soil provides different characteristics and minerals to the varieties planted. Researching into how soils influence wines is part of learning about the terroir.
Constant breezes and winds keep vineyards healthy and contribute to fruit concentration, color and structure as grapes develop a thicker skin.
Clear skies allow constant sun exposure and therefore intense colors. Low precipitation and low relative humidity contribute to the effect produced by breezes in obtaining healthy grape clusters. As part of our philosophy we utilize drip irrigation, which enables careful management of this precious resource.
A large temperature gap between day and night during the ripening period favors the balance between acidity and sugar in the grapes
