The La Consulta region is located
in the well-known Uco Valley, approximately 1,200 metres (3,950
ft.) above sea level. At this altitude, there is a significant
fluctuation between daytime and night-time temperatures of up
to 20║-25║C. This variance particularly favours the production
of wines with an excellent colour and suitable for long ageing
in oak barrels.
The region┤s stony and sandy soils offer excellent drainage during
the summer season. The lack of organic material, limited rainfall
and prevailing winds are also conductive to high quality, healthy
grapes. Furthermore, the water that irrigates the estates comes
pure and clean from the snow thawing on the Andes.
