DO BIERZO

Logo of the DO BIERZO
Placed to the Northwest of León's Province. With 2.954,28 km2, The Bierzo covers 18 % of the Provincial surface. Geographically it borders on the provinces of Orense, Lugo, Oviedo, and on the following zones from Leon: La Montaña (Murias de Paredes y Laciana), La Cabrera and la Meseta, being therefore a zone of transition between Galicia, León and Asturias. The Bierzo is a set of small valleys in the highland zone and wide and flat depression, the low Bierzo, which are going to form the types of culture.

Climate

The Bierzo has a microclimate very special and very adapted to the cultures of the zone. It is a question of a soft, benign, rather moderate climate regulated by certain dampness, all this owed undoubtedly to that The Bierzo is placed in a valley.It is a climate similar to the Galician in what to dampness it refers and on the other hand it is dry as in Castile, which makes it very typical guarding a water balance to what another advantage is added, his low altitude prevents, generally, the late frosts what turns out to be benign enough for the vintage that goes forward, normally, one month on those of the rest of Castile and the Rioja. The rainfall reaches a minimum in summer and maximum in the winters months.The fluctuation of dampness in long periods is very low, happening of subhumid to humid, or to I dry subhumid but they never appreciate extreme such pernicious variations for the grapevines. The extreme temperatures are given in winter and summer, being the average of 12,3ºC, a few average minims of 3,6 being registered º in the cold months and maxims of 23,6 º in the warmest months. The rainfalls are of the order of 721 mm in an average year.The average annual sunstroke is coded in 2.100 at 2.200 hours of the Sun throughout the year.
