Respect is what they offer to their vineyards, their environment and all the people who are making it possible for them to be a small part of this excellence today.
Climate and soil
In the province of Alicante, the influence of the Mediterranean Sea is very characteristic, whose sea breezes circulate through the mountainous corridors that have created the Carrascal de la Font Roja Natural Park and the Protected Landscape of the Sierra del Maigmó that provide greater freshness to the leaf surface.
In the province there are two areas with very different climates and soils: The Mediterranean coast whose sea breezes exert a great influence on the vineyards of coastal municipalities. And another inland area in the Alto Vinalopó region, with altitudes of more than 600 meters above sea level, where the sea breezes also arrive with great influence through the natural mountainous corridors. In this area of Alicante pre-plateau we find adult vineyards in soils with a high presence of calcareous edges, crust, stones and sand.
