This type of climate is only found in four other places in the world: the Mediterranean coast, the California coast, Cape of Good Hope, and the southwestern coast of Australia. The low humidity, the maritime influence of the Pacific Ocean, and the breezes from the Coastal Mountains generate a daily temperature differential of approximately 10º / 18ºF, which is ideal for growing wine grapes.

Planted area: 213 hectares.

Varieties: Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Viognier, Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc, Carmenere, and Syrah
