TERROIR

For many years, Finca Ambrosia has been working with Ph.D Pedro Parra, the well-known terroir expert, who is consulting Ambrosia on a regular basis on how to maximize the impact of terroir on the wine.

GUALTALLARY
Ambrosia vineyards are located in the Gualtallary area of Tupungato department. Its geological condition makes it a unique terroir in Argentina. It has cool climate and altitude, offering balanced pH and acidity that are optimal when the grapes reach their maturation.

The area is the ideal land for vines cultivation because of its peculiar formation of soils. They are based on pure limestone over quaternary gravels and the presence of clay in the ground is another important factor in the development of vines. Combined with low clay content, the area is the perfect ecosystem to allow the plant to grow with a naturally controlled vigor.

ALTITUDE
Altitude has a positive impact on the quality of the grapes. Ambrosia’s vineyards are between located 1,200 and 1,300 m above sea level, while Mendoza valley is approximately 800 m above sea level and places like Agrelo 1,000 m above sea level. At the Ambrosia Estate, the sun’s ultraviolet rays are present in a high concentration resulting in more exposure of the grapes to the sun’s rays delivering thicker and darker skin on the grapes for greater protection. During the process, the grapes’ color concentration, aromas and flavors all increase creating more anthocyanins within the grape itself, which are the famous antioxidant components.
