Winery Notes:  The vineyards are located at 130 meters up hill on a gently sloping south-east facing slope. The clay-limestone soil is composed of clay loam and fragments of limestone from the erosion of the slopes, alternating with marls and marly-limestones. The soil provides the vineyards with great water reserve, which is good for vines and grapes maturities in our Mediterranean climate. 

The vineyard has been managed in organic farming since 2006 and biodynamic practices have been introduced for 5 years.
