Climate / Quality of the soil:The typical warm, dry microclimate and the rather long autumns favour a slow and thorough ripening of the grapes. There is a long vegetation time of 210-240 days with a maximum humidity of 55-80%.
The soil here is strewn with marine fossils and the grapes enjoy the perfect combination of warm days and cool nights.
