The Ribera del Duero enjoys a continental climate Atlantic, dry, and windy, with winters very hard, long and cold, and short, dry and hot summers. There are long periods of persistent and frequent frosts that begin in October and end in May with little snowfall.
Geothermal energy arises as an alternative energy source renewable, efficient and clean, allowing its use both in the air conditioning of the rooms (barrel cellar, bottle maturation, sudden area...), as in the thermal control of the production process, taking advantage of the synergies produced among them to achieve a global improvement of the energy performance of the building of environment to 65%, as well as a reduction of CO2 emissions of 70% compared to a conventional facility.
The specific climatic conditions that characterize the cultivation of the vine in Traslascuestas Wineries, have a great influence throughout the vegetative cycle of the vines, playing a key role in the development of the plant and the ripening of the grapes. Of these special conditions depends largely on the quality of the obtained wines.
