The mountain ridge running along the west side has an annual rainfall of ± 1200mm, mainly in winter, supported by an abundance of underground water, dam and natural springs.
All vineyards are irrigated to manage plant stress through the dry summer months. The geographic layout provides good sunlight exposure with relatively cool days for a warm, mediteranian climate.
The higher slopes cool more rapidly once the sun sets. Although high, there is no frost or snow, with the winter night time temperature rarely dropping below 6 degrees Celsius.
