Character of the Valley

With a cool and moderate climate, the Limarí Valley is immersed in one of the areas with the clearest skies in the world.

Marine Influence

The low height of the Coastal Range in the area and the proximity to the Pacific Ocean allow the sea breeze to enter the valley through the Limarí River, cooling our vineyards and moderating the high temperatures in the Limarí Valley.

Brightness / Camanchaca

Solar radiation in the Limarí Valley is 35% higher than in the Central Valley. However, in the morning the camanchaca -marine fog coming from the Pacific Ocean- blows into the valley, cooling the vines and protecting the fruit from overexposure to light. This allows the slow and prolonged maturity of the grapes, resulting in very fresh wines.

Minerality

Low rainfall during the year generates soils with high concentrations of calcareous salts (calcium carbonate) in different strata. On the other hand, the low speed of the river at the end of its journey from the Andes to the Pacific Ocean has also made the soils rich in red clay. All this has resulted in calcareous-based soils rich in red clay, which allow a slower ripening of the grapes and give the wines an intense mineral character.

This is why the Limarí Valley is the ideal terroir for the production of classic Burgundy varieties: Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
