Information about this parcel in the vineyard

The middle part of the land, where these varieties are planted, has variable soils that range from poor parts to areas with more fertile land, which makes the vines grow with medium vigor, favoring anthocyanins for color, fruitiness and skin thickness, producing low volumes but with a long maturation, with medium minerality and balanced acidity. The plantation is located in the Santa María de Gallardo Valley in Aguascalientes, on a slope facing east, where the vines enjoy the morning and afternoon sun, with cool climates at night and hot but dry during the day. The particular soils are sandy loam, with a large quantity of calcareous stone.


Vine training, Handling and Harvesting
