All plots of land together form a rounded unit that is divided by an asphalt road on the ridge of the hill. On the side of the road opposite to the main building and the vineyards lie three plots of land: 221, 225/1 in 226/2. These plots face the north and their grade can reach up to 35%.  A part of these plots is covered with trees (apples, walnuts, and forest trees). The soil here is dark brown loam.Other plots face the south and are, due to the location of the main building which stands on the ridge, located on the hill whose grade ranges from 15% to 25%. The land is airy and very suitable for an active vineyard due to its exposure to sunlight. The soil is lightly sandy, marly and mid-hard loamy. The vineyard lies in the upper part of the estate, while the lower part is covered with grassland and a fishpond.
