The soils, which are composed of weathered, meager primary rock, sometimes containing iron, sometimes interspersed with gneiss, granite and mica slate, constitute the natural potential for wines with dense fruit, aromatic depth, mineral raciness and elegant, subtle structure.

The French term "terroir", originally translated by "the taste of earth", has been adopted all over the world. Today, terroir is defined in a more complex manner. Interpretations are accordingly contradictory.
We understand by terroir the sum of all natural and cultural parameters, which means, above all, geographic, geologic, vegetative and climatic aspects as well as the cultivation and nurture by man. Wine is shaped by nature and culture.
