When we talk about terroir (soil), we are talking about a set of factors that have some striking feature in their agricultural production, defining and delimiting the geographical region where the vineyard is located.
During the productive period, very cold evenings stand out in spring time. Warm summer days and cool nights create an ideal temperature rage for a homogeneous ripening of the grapes components. Early frosts during fall and harsh winters form a special microclimate.
Thanks to the currents from the south, this microclimate phenomenon makes this area an exceptional terroir.
It presents a loamy sand soil, semi-compact and very permeable, as a result of the Tertiary geological structure.
The land possesses a great inclination and perfect drainage. It moisturizes with natural snow melted water from Los Andes through flood irrigation.
