River rock and pebblestone

The peculiarity of our soil

The soil where Evandria vineyard stands used to be a lake, therefore rocks and stones are predominant. These stones and rocks have been shaped along the years by the river Guadiana creating round pebbles.
Evandria’s both stony and sandy soil can keep the heat during the day, then releasing it at night; this has an accelerating effect on the maturation of grapes. Our grape harvest may start at the end of July, among the earliest in the Northern Hemisphere.

Stones also help to maintain ground humidity during the dry, hot Summer months.
