The climate

At Inazares, late frosts continue until the start of May.

Hailstorms start in early June and in August.

The absence of intensive crop production in adjacent areas and the presence of pure water from the thawing of snow minimise the presence of pests.

In the foothills of the Subbaetic System, at an altitude of 1,373 m.a.s.l. and with coordinates of 38.0829 N / -2.2060 W, the property of Alto de Inazares is on the eastern slope of the massif of Revolcadores, which is home to El Obispo (“The Bishop”) and rises to an elevation of 2,015 m.a.s.l, making it the highest point in the region of Murcia (Spain).

It is a marginal climate that, despite the high risk of frost and hailstones, has the advantage of limited rainfall during the ripening period, overwhelming brightness, infinite hours of sunlight, a ventilated environment, and large contrasts in temperature and humidity between day and night, making it ideal for the cultivation high-quality grapes.

In Murcia, the regional capital 50 m.a.s.l., temperatures are always between 10ºC and 17ºC above those recorded in Inazares. It has annual rainfall of 250mm.

Grown in a location that has an average of close to 300 days of sunlight a year and an extremely high UV index, the grape berries produced there have a high sugar content and excellent acidity of 6 to 7 gr/l, resulting in fresh, fruity wines.

This plot has a microclimate, within the region of Murcia, that produces surprises in almost all vintages.
