Question: Name of the wind affecting Rioja vineyards?
Answer: There is a strong wind called CIERZO. It flows from northern Spain through the Ebro River Valley affecting several regions in Spain including Rioja plus Aragon & Navarra. Similar to the MISTRAL in the Rhone Valley of France. The positive result of the winds is usually a benefit to the vineyards in moderating temperatures and humidity levels allowing the grapes to ripen more gradually with less disease pressure.
