The soil: The soil on which the plots are located is medium to strongly eroded reddish-brown loam. The soil texture is characterized by the existence of a clay content between 19 - 25%, having a good capacity to retain water and aerate the root mass. There are also traces of calcium carbonate, the content in active limestone being approximately 2.4% at the depth of 0-60 cm. This creates optimal conditions for obtaining high quality wines.
The climate is temperate continental with specific aspects of the transition zone from the steppe to the forest-steppe. Winters are generally cold during which there are sudden temperature changes determined by cold air invasions from the N-NE direction.
