The Denomination of Origin Catalunya extends to the northeast of the Iberian Peninsula, between the Mediterranean Sea and the Pyrenees. It has a Mediterranean climate, with many hours of sunshine, with dry and mild winters and not very hot summers. Spring and autumn tend to be the most unstable and rainy seasons. The average annual temperature is around 14-15ºC and rainfall ranges from 350 mm / year in the driest areas to more than 600 mm / year in the wettest areas. In the littoral and littoral, sea breezes regain solar heating, which is more intense as we move inland. On the coast, the climate is milder and temperate, with temperatures increasing from north to south, contrary to rainfall. The interior, far from the sea, presents a Mediterranean continental climate, with cold winters and hot summers. The predominant soils in the DO Catalunya are sedimentary deposits of calcareous nature, poor in organic matter and medium texture.
