El valle de Aconcagua has a Mediterranean climate with warm summers that are cooled by breezes of the Pacific Ocean and its cold Humboldt Current. This cooling influence creates a long growing season with ripenig some two to three weeks later than any other Chilean wine region. Late ripening enhances the flavours, intensity and concentration of our wines. Average rainfall in the valley is 250mm (9.8 inches) and only comes during the winter; this is about a quarter of the rainfall in Bordeaux, making for generally more concentrated wines. This lack of rain helps the viticulturalists to control vigour and berry size, as well as to maintain ripening. As the air is warm and dry, fungal diseases like mildew and botrytis are unknown in el valle de Aconcagua, this allows us to pursue a non-interventionist, sustainable approach to viticulture.
