The topography of the Escondido Valley AVA is unique, as the valley floor is about 2,700 feet above sea level. Located entirely within Pecos County in the state of Texas, the appellation covers 50 square miles, with approximately 250 acres of vineyards. Soils in this region can be described as calcerous, very deep, well-drained and moderately permeable. They are loamy, with a terrain ranging from nearly level to gently sloping. The climate here is quite warm during the long growing season, although there are seldom extremes of temperature. Due to its elevation, it is also very dry, making irrigation paramount for successful viticulture. Bud break is usually in the second or third week of March, with harvest near the end of August.
