The Tramontane, the strong northerly wind, with gusts that frequently exceed 120 km/h, is the most characteristic aspect of the climate affecting cultivation in the area and is highly beneficial for vine health.
On the other hand, the winters are mild with few frosts and the summers are hot and tempered by sea breezes. The average annual temperature is between 14 and 16º C. Rainfall is around 600 litres per year. With regards temperature and sunshine, the Empordà area is located in region III of the Amerine and Winkler scale, making it well-suited for medium and long growing season varieties and perfect for producing naturally sweet wines.
Overall, the climate is ideal for growing vines to produce quality wines that do not have the harshness of southern wines.
