Monterebro Vineyards

The Vineyards

The Monastrell, Syrah, Tempranillo, and Sauvignon Blanc vineyards cover a total surface area of 79 hectares. The vineyards are located at altitudes of between 700 and 800 metres above sea level, in Jumilla. Plant density is 1,600 vines per hectare and yields are approximately 2 tons per acre. Soils are sandy, chalky, and rocky on the surface.

The climate in Jumilla is continental and weather conditions are extreme despite the nearby Mediterranean Sea. The contrast between daytime and night-time temperatures frequently exceeds 20°C during the rapid growth phase. Rainfall is scarce and very irregular with less than 300mm per year. Due to these weather conditions the vineyards produce extremely concentrated small grapes.
