The plots are located at the northern end of Dealu Mare vineyard, 15 km west of Buzau. It is a hilly region, geomorphologically included in the southern group of the Buzău Subcarpathian.
The vineyards are located at an altitude of 205 - 285 m.
The land has a south-eastern exposure, and the terrain is arranged in terraces.
The soil where the plots are located is medium to heavily eroded reddish-brown silt loam land. The soil texture is characterized by a clay content of 19-25%, with good water retention and facilitates root aeration. There are also traces of calcium carbonate, with active limestone content of approximately 2.4% at depths of 0-60 cm. This creates optimal conditions for producing high-quality wines.
