The influence of the Pacific Ocean on the Tapihue Vineyard, especially the Humboldt Current (an Antarctic current that runs the length of the Chilean coast and moderates temperatures), results in early morning fog and cool breezes that begin at midday and allow the grapes to maintain their freshness and acidity.
The Tapihue Vineyard is characterized by its granitic soil with a loam-clay texture and little organic matter. A few spots, including where our Pinot Noir is planted also have some quartz, which lends a unique minerality and encourages the fruit to ripen more slowly.
Area under vine: 46 hectares.
Average rainfall: 450 mm per year.
