It is a real continental climate. There is a certain height (220-375 mt). This results in relatively wet springs and early summers. Temperatures are average later in the summer. A challenge for the region is the few regulation drops during the growing season and the absence of much groundwater. Nevertheless, efforts are being made to meet these challenges.

Soil & Topography

There is a mix of gray-brown sandy soil combined with brown sandy soil. The substrate can be acidic. This, combined with the climate, results in average grape growth.
