In Huelva County, three types of soil can be clearly distinguished: the first, sandy or sandy loam, in the areas closest to Doñana, where we benefit from the freshness in the summer season and its drainage in the rainy season. Thanks to the low surface humidity the proliferation of diseases is prevented and a high water table is created below. The second soil is the albarizo, somewhat less limestone than those of Jerez, but which confer the same characteristics to the wines and accumulate nutrients and water well.
Finally, the clay or clay loam, soils with low yield but high quality. And as a main characteristic in common, it highlights the fact that these three types of soils are mixed, and that virtually all of the plots appear all three.
In them we cultivate the grape zalema, native in our geography and that does not occur anywhere else in the world, and that is the livelihood of our wine activity. It coexists with the varieties listán, palomino, muscatel and fine garrido, and for some years with red grapes such as tempranillo and syrah, and white as the colombard, of French origin.
