Soil ProfileBodegas Cristo de la Vega relies on extensive vineyards belonging exclusively to the members of the winery.
The landscape isn’t very hilly with an altitude around 700 meters above the sea level.
The terrain is flat, without great heights and with beautiful red Miocene sediments of limestone structure.
Our vineyards enjoy a continental climate with hot summers, long and cold winters with rainfall ranging from 300 to 400 mm. These extreme conditions favour the maturation process of the varieties grown in our vineyards, some of them of almost 100 years old.
