Thanks to the influence of the dry morning winds from the west,along with the more humid winds from the sea that blow in the evenings and cool down the air, the thermal contrast between day and night is increased.
Located more than 700 meters above sea level, these plots benefit from a sufficient level of rainfall that is needed for high-quality winegrowing: an annual average of between 380 and 600 mm. The texture of the soils is loamy (silty-loam, sandy-loam), with different amounts of gravel. The permeability of this underground gravel allows the ground to adequately drain, while the clays help to retain moisture, thus achieving an optimal water balance for growing the vines. This set of unique conditions favours a slow maturation of the grapes, with late harvests that contribute to achieving optimal high acidity, thick skins, smooth tannins and a remarkably intense colour of the wines.
incessant search for varieties of grapes that best adapt to the territory has prompted Tomàs Cusiné to plant 17 different varieties, whose adaptation to the climatic conditions and the soils in the area is controlled by research and development.
