Gravel, volcanic ash and cobblestones provide the right drainage and encourage vines to grow in soil perfect for Cabernet Sauvignon.
An idyllic climate brings chilly nights and cool mornings, so vines can slowly coax the grapes to maturity.
During the day, warm sunshine melts the fog and gently heats the vines and its fruit.

Amid moderate temperatures, grapes mature slowly and fully, so that at harvest sugars and skins are at their optimum.
