Local climatic conditions with significant fluctuations in day and night temperatures, as well as possible, are suitable for maximizing the potential of Chardonnay. For the production of "Gulfstream" Chardonnay, selected berries are used only from the best, low-yielding vineyards. Soils are mainly granite and loamy, rich in minerals, well-drained.
