Costers Del Segre DO Temperature, Rainfall and Sunshine

Costers del Segre - which means 'the banks of the River Segre', a tributary of the Ebro - was created less than twenty years ago. However, it has seen many changes since then, with both cooperative and private bodegas incorporating new subzones and experimental grapes from abroad alongside traditional native varieties.

Today that has produced a series of wines with great personal character, some of them considered among the most unusual in Spain, their styles based on intelligent blending of local grapes with recently planted French varieties. At the same time, thanks to the climate and soil conditions, there is also plenty of potential for future development.
