OUR STRENGHT


climat

Quintessential Mediterranean climate: low rainfall, strong sunshine, exposure to the Mistral winds. All three terroirs at Aqueria give rise to exceptional wines of rare quality.
The soils are calcareous and light with good filtration properties. It is no coincidence that the earliest traces of viticulture go as far back as Gallo-Roman times. At Château d’Aqueria, the terroir reigns supreme. Study of the soil, respect for all its assets, recognition of the richness of this primary resource underlie the philosophy at Château d’Aqueria.
