To date, 11 terraces of about a hundred yards long and twenty feet wide, the ü.d. 200 to 350 m M lie. Access roads that follow the contour lines separate, individual terraces each other. The plots, in south-east direction applied, benefit from the Mediterranean climate and are protected from the scorching sun. Significant shale deposits from the Paleozoic (before 400/500 million years ago) formed on the territory the basis of the vineyard and give it the distinctive flavor. On these slopes over 30 years now, the vines thrive admirably. Their roots run deep in the arid and arid soils with good ventilation, and they get out of the wet slate columns necessarymineral substances for their growth. In the nineties, here about 20 hectares of forest have been replanted with the most common Mediterranean tree species, such as pine and oak trees, and nearly a hundred bees care for the preservation of a species-rich flora.
