San Rafael Vineyard

Climate

Our San Rafael vineyard has a Mediterranean climate, greatly influenced by the cold night wind blowing down from the Andes Mountains. This effect increases the daily thermal oscillation and reduces the period of maximum temperatures, helping the fruit to ripen slowly and in good condition.

Soil

Gentle slopes with sedimentary soil of volcanic origin. The soils are of medium depth, with a loamy-clayey consistency at both surface level and depth, and a low percentage of organic matter.

Area under vine: 546 hectares.

Average rainfall: 750 mm per year.
