The natural factors, climate, especially, and I occur, they have determined the division of the Rioja in three subzones: Rioja Alta: With a continental moderate climate, of Cantabrian influence, the vineyard spreads on clayey calcareous areas of soft topography. Stands out the vine-stock Tempranillo, which provides stained balanced wines, of attractive color ruby, elegant aroma, stable, specially indicated for upbringing. Rioja Baja: The climate and the fertile nature of the area provide very good crops, with a few perfectly mature grapes. The driest climate, of Mediterranean influence, and clayey ferrous soil there favor the red wines of Robe, wines Francs, aromatics and slightly acid. Rioja Alavesa: They are these rough, calcareous lands very adapted for the culture of the grapevine; the summers are short and the moderate winters, with some frost but few snow. The vineyard is orientated in the southern part, protected by the Saw of Cantabria. This zone elaborates stained wines with the Tempranillo that so much young women (of harvester) since submitted to upbringing high levels of quality reach.

Climate

Though small in extension, the natural region of Rioja possesses different soils and climatic zones. This aspect favors the development of the grapevine, since it provides to him different characteristics that stamp the peculiarity of our wines. As the area of Rioja descends from west to this one, the climate becomes increasingly dry and hot due to the influence of the Mediterranean.
