Also known as Chacolí de Álava in Spanish.
The nearby Bay of Biscay is visible from some of these vineyards, and the success or failure of each one of these plantings and the character of each vintage lies in the exposure to the weather that is at least partly determined by that Bay. Spring frosts are common; complete ripening is unlikely, and those vineyards planted in clay soils can struggle mightily. On the other hand, the vineyards planted in stony soils do far better.
