Climate & soil

Climatic aspects are fundamental. The climatic conditions at Tiare Vineyards are characterised by quite an important difference between the minimum and maximum temperatures, when compared to other wine-growing areas of the region.

The different origins of the soils and their traits contribute to distinguish the quality of Tiare wines. Our grape varieties grow in two types of soils: Hilly soil composed of flysch (alternate layers of marl and sandstone) with a limited useful layer. Deep foothill soil, which is characterised by a finer grain. The different conditions of the soil affect the quantity of water needed and the levels of fertility.
