the Village of Obcha boasts a unique micro-climate for growing the grapes that are used to make baia’s wines. Obcha is located east of the Sairme Mountains, which RECEIVES a slightly higher angle of the sun’s rays with a greater solar intensity. At 324 meters above sea level, the Land offers an ideal location for growing premium wine grapes. The perfect balance of geography, micro-climate and well-drained soil come together to create the perfect environment for bais’s exquisitely handcrafted wines. The heavy cold air that collects between the high peaks during the night drains off the heights, much like water, joining cold moist air, creating a double cooling effect. The cool nighttime temperatures are critical in developing high quality grapes. The alluvial soil, with clay, gravel, sand and limestone have another significant influence on wine quality. The limestone offers good drainage in the wet years, retaining much needed moisture in the dry vintages, while adding various mineral elements to the soils, which transfer to the gorgeous grapes.
