Located in the west side of the Coastal range of mountains. Very close to sea shore, only 12 kilometers from the Pacific ocean.
Maximum temperature in summer time gets to 24° Celsius during only one or two hours. The sea breeze cools the air, and drops the temperature. Daily difference between maximum and minimum in summer time is of 12° Celsius. This contributes to a very slow ripening process of the grapes that permits the development of very intense fruity aromas and a high acidity.
Vineyards are planted on rolling hills. Soils have a granitic origin and its natural fertility is very low. This contributes to obtain low yields and concentrated grapes.
A great place for cold weather varieties such as Sauvignon blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling, Gewurztraminer; Pinot noir and Syrah.BACK
