The climate is also ideal for growing grapes and producing high-quality wine due to its moderate temperatures year round with only mild variations during the winter and summer seasons. The soil in the region is mainly composed of limestone deposits that are rich in calcium, magnesium, and potassium. This allows the vineyards to produce wines with high acidity levels while exhibiting subtle flavors.
