The soils are of alluvial origin and have fine weathered gravel with loam to sandy-loam texture to a great depth and includes rocks of diverse stages of weathering. The best zones of the vineyard are on a hill formed by the weatherization of rocks. There is also old red clay and abundant quartz gravel on the surface. The organic content is low and the soil has low fertility and medium depth. The vineyard’s gradients vary, with 30% hillsides.
The climate is hot in this area, although the temperatures are moderated by morning mists and the nights are cold due to its proximity to the sea. During the summer months the temperatures fluctuate between 9º ad 30ºC, with brief high points in the afternoon. This extreme oscillation makes this zone ideal for Syrah and Viognier. The winds are predominantly south-southwest and usually begin to blow in the afternoon, which helps lower the temperature for the vines at night and encourages the accumulation of sugars and fruit characteristics in the grapes. The average precipitation is 550 mm per year due to the formation of clouds from the Coastal Mountain Range.
This charming area is the birthplace of Chilean rural tradition and the huaso, or horseman, a very typical character in Chile. The nights there are clear and starry like few other places in Chile due to the pure skies. This virgin land is just 30 km from the Pacific Ocean.
