The Costers del Segre DO is located near the city of Lleida along the Segre River.

The landscape there is very arid with less than 15 inches of rainfall a year. There are extreme temperature variations throughout the year, with freezing cold winters and summertime highs in excess of 95 °F.

The river Ebre provides the irrigation vital to the viticulture of the area, which includes Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Macabeo, Merlot, Parellada, Pinot noir and Tempranillo plantations.

Even though the vineyards are dispersed geographically, most are on dark lime bearing soils, with a high lime content, low clay content and organic matter. Height varies between 250 m and 700 m above sea level.

Our selected winery in the D.O. Costers del Segre is Mas Garcia Muret.
