He strongly embraced the belief that good wine is made in the vineyard; thus particular attention is paid to the notion of terroir. This is a family affair puts in a lot of hard work. The vineyards cover 17 hectares of land and they are located at an altitude of 400-600 m; they are influenced by the warm Mediterranean climate and the considerable rainfall (620 mm per year, on average). The surrounding hills, the limestone and quartz rich soils, together with the uninterrupted exposure to the winds of the valley, modify the local mesoclimate.
