In the following video Lauren Rosillo, technical director and winemaker of Familia Martínez Bujanda, explains to us from Finca Antigua, the types of frost that can affect the vineyards with the arrival of spring.

These can be of two types: radiation frosts, which are the most frequent, also known as white frosts, or advection frosts, which are less frequent and much more damaging and are also known as black frosts.

Typical frosts in high altitude areas, as is the case of Finca Antigua, are radiological frosts, which occur when the lowest layers of the atmosphere drop a few degrees below zero, due to the absence of wind and the humidity of the soil.
