The Impact of Arid Climate and Terroir on Wine
Arid climates provide unique conditions and challenges, but when cultivated correctly, yield world-class wine. Arid regions have fewer pests, less disease, simpler viticultural methods, ample sunshine, and the ability to control hydric stress through irrigation. This climate is not without its challenges though, as it requires work irrigation, canopy management, judicious grape selections, and diligence to acidity retention. The varieties that tend to thrive in these arid conditions are Garnacha, Monastrell, and Tempranillo. MundoVino represents diverse expressions of arid climate wines in key regions like Campo de Borja, La Mancha, Alicante, and Mendoza.
