Climate

Climate

The “Tierra del vino” region benefits from a dry continental climate with extreme temperatures. Winters are bitterly cold and summers dry and hot. Winter average temperatures do not exceed 3ºC and summer time reaches 23ºC. Precipitations are scarce and the annual overall hardly reaches 400 mm. The region stands at an average height of around 750m above sea level. Generally speaking we can say that according to the mentioned parameters, the climatology varies in our region, losing humidity and gaining temperature while we move from North to South. The ice-free period is set to approximately 190 days a year and the average active vegetation period is set to 210. The effective insolation exceeds 2.800 hours per year.


Soil

Soil

The Tierra del vino region is crossed by many rivers (Duero, Valderaduey, Guareña, Valparaíso, Ribera de Campeán…), and consequently the structure of the soil is clearly alluvial. The Topsoil is deep, highly permeable and with an excellent retentive capacity, although poor in organic matter. The underlying layers are rich in clay. Sand is frequently found on the topsoil on the plains, whilst on the hillsides gravel is more common and the hilltops tend to be covered with small pebbles and stones.

Conclusion

Conclusion

Climatological factors just like the edaphologic ones contribute to the first vocation of our ground to be vineyard harvesting, and thus enabling the production of an excellent quality grape.
