Continental Mediterranean climate of the area is characterized by sudden changes in temperature, harsh winters and hot summers. But during the entire growing season frost risk is minimal, which greatly simplifies the task of winegrowers. The vines are fertilized only with natural, environmentally friendly products, excluding the use of any herbicides or chemicals. For irrigation uses modern drip irrigation system, which consists of a controlled vertical electrical probes that transmit data to a central computer. This system allows you to adjust the level of each plant watering during dry seasons.
