MAIPO VALLEY

DOM VINEYARD

SURROUNDINGS & CLIMATE
This vineyard is in the Metropolitan Region, in a transversal mountain chain belonging to the Coastal Range. The vineyard is planted on a gentle, south-facing slope and therefore receives much less sunshine in the summer, making it cooler. Further up the slope, there is abundant very old native vegetation. The area is quite windy in the afternoons because of its proximity to the Maipo River gorge.

COLLUVIAL SOILS
The soil is on a slope of colluvial origin broken up by very stony layers. These have been formed because high up, in some parts of the hills, the are cliffs with fractured rocks that fall to the base and rest there, forming a soil with very angular stones. This soil is perfect for planting Cabernet Sauvignon because of its low fertility, which naturally controls the growth and production of grapes, resulting in very high quality.
