These unique surroundings are strategically chosen for, providing the vineyards with lots of sunlight and fresh air, which allows the grapes of the vine branches to get as much photosynthesis and therefore develop as much taste and richness. Furthermore, because of the high altitude, the grapes have greater acidity and more freshness.
