Moderate Mediterranean climate
Agustí Torello Mata
The soils in Catalunya are influenced by its Mediterranean climate and border to the Pyrenees. Growing conditions become progressively more arid as you get further inland. The diversity of soil types, mostly calcareous sediments mixed with alluvium, sandy soils, and clay allow the presence of some of the most renowned vineyards of Spain. Microclimates and great vineyards are also found on hidden scattered limestone deposits in the area.
