Climatic conditions for your trials:

The climate of the Pyrenees-Orientales, Mediterranean type, allows to have relatively mild winters and hot summers (it is one of the hottest regions of France). Winds play a big role, especially the Tramontana, which cools the area during dry summers, and protects the vines from diseases. On the other hand the rain and the clouds are brought by a sea wind, the marinade. The Pyrenees Orientales is a department where the altitudes range from 0 to 2,900 meters. The department is therefore characterized by a wide range of climatic and soil conditions, which are at the origin of a great diversity of territories and agricultural productions.

Viticulture remains predominant in this region. Vineyards exploits schists, limestones, clayey-sandy molasses, or gravelly terraces along the valleys. These soils are generally dry, stony and well drained. The tree-based sector exploits flat and irrigated land. Vegetables highlights the silt lands contributed by the repeated floods of coastal rivers in the coastal plain. The mild climate of the department allows several harvests per year, especially for salads.
