Climatology and Conditions

Climate
With Mediterranean and continental influence, the temperature and fresh air drafts from Sierra Nevada produce a beneficial effect that predisposes grapes to a higher development of polyphenols which grants wine the color, the softness and a tannic structure.

Land presents variable compositions of slate and clay that provide ideal conditions to the wines from Granada. The orography of terraced hillsides and slopes causes that working in the vineyards require more labor than in other wine regions since it is not possible to mechanize the process of collection.

Altitude. The production of grape has been traditionally related to high and medium zones of the mountain systems of the Province, which causes important thermal oscillations and very low temperature that prolongs and improves the maturing process. The average altitude of the vineyards of Granada is about 1.200 meters.
