The Yecla Denomination of Origin is located on the Murcia Plateau, at an altitude of between 500 and 900 metres. It has numerous jagged NE-SE mountain ranges. The most important mountain ranges are the Sierra del Cuchillo, the Sierra Salina and the Serral.
In this unsettled orography a large number of different soils coexist.
These soils originated mainly from sediments of the Pliocene period (2000 million years ago). They all have the same pH: they are all basic soils with an average pH of 8, poor in organic material with low total nitrogen content. These parameters limit the vigour of the vine and make the soils unproductive, thus guaranteeing concentrated wines.
The climate of Yecla is of a dry continental type, with very hot summers which can reach 39ºC, and cold winters with temperatures which can drop to -10ºC on the coldest days. The mean temperature in Yecla is around 15ºC.
Rainfall is scarce, coming mainly in spring and autumn. Summer storms in the form of downpours or torrential rainfall are common in summer, often accompanied by hailstones.
This climate is the origin of our soil and our wines. Wines with character, colour and intense flavour.
