" The tradition combined with innovation is the source of the excellent wines of our estate."

The predominant soils are calcareous, and these differ in their origin - among the interstratified compact limestone and calcareous sandstones fine. That distinction is mainly associated with the elevation of plots (between 50 m and 240 m) and slope of the same, reflecting on the soil texture: clay in the lower areas, and frank in the highest parts and more slope. While the depth is very variable, has an excellent water retention capacity sufficient for the vegetative development of the vine.
