DO TERRA ALTA
The production area of the DO Terra Alta is situated to the south of Catalonia, between the Ebro River and the borders of Aragon.
The landscape of Terra Alta DO is both breathtaking and typical of the Mediterranean Interior. The earth is made up of a variety of textures, is well-drained, rich in lime and contains low levels of organic matter
This land of vineyards is between 350 and 550 m above sea level, and is characterized by plains, high plateau and valleys. It enjoys a dry Mediterranean climate with little rain (between 350 and 450 mm/year), has abundant sunlight, and is influenced by two prevailing winds - the Cierzo, which arrives from the Ebro Valley, and the “Garbi” or sea wind.
Additionally, the nature of the soil provides the grapes with an exceptionally high concentration of minerals, and the considerable temperature changes between night and day while the grapes are ripening maximizes the aromas and flavors of the different varieties.
