ALBAIDA VALLEY (Interior of Gandía)
"Al Baida is an Arabic toponym that means "the white one" and refers to the color of its lands.
The Valley is surrounded by mountains such as Serra Grossa, Serra de la solana, Serra dÁgullent, Cova Alta and Benicadell
Its limestone lands, its rivers, fountains and springs, give this valley a freshness and incomparable characteristics to cultivate our vineyards and produce high quality wines."

The very orientation of these mountains conditions the climate of Vall d'Albaida, since it channels the winds from the sea, which explains the frequent rainfall in some areas and the snowfall on the peaks.
The moisture-laden east wind rises sharply when reaching the mountains and this causes a drop in temperature in winter.
All these natural characteristics of the soil, together with the very ideal climatic conditions, of cold winters and hot summers, with rainfall in autumn and spring, allow a correct development and an extraordinary ripening of the grapes.

Three experiences for España Discovery travellers:
