Climate Soils

Ticino's climate is not exactly Mediterranean and hence tremendously influenced by sea. The spot offers a totally different climate and temperature in comparison with rest of the places of Switzerland. The frequent rainfall of the place (although a blessing on one hand) can be a bit dangerous, as it bears greater risk of hailstorms. Thus gripe growers are used to defend their harvest with special anti-hail nets. The high average temperature and impressive number of hours of sunshine is suitable in case of complete ripening of the grapes.

Average temperature:
January: 1.9°C / 35.4°F
July: 21.3°C / 70.3°F
Year: 11.7°C / 53°F

Rainfall: 1750 mm. /yr. (68 in.)
