The Peumo Vineyard is located 170 m above sea level and extended along the Cachapoal River, on terraces of hills of the Coastal Mountains. e vines come from pre-phylloxera cuttings and are trellised to vertical shoot position and cordon pruned. e soils are deep with an upper layer of clay that retains moisture, which controls the vines’ vigor and growth and allows them to remain active through late May, when the Carmenere is picked.
Deep alluvial silty-clay soil associated with riverbed. e clay retains water, which contributes to good ripening of the grapes. e characteristics of the retention are perfect for controlling the growth of the plants.
