What is Terroir and why is it important?

Learn, and taste, how environmental factors in certain regions impact the taste of our wines!

Terroir is a French word derived from “terre,” meaning land and “describes not what the grower and farmer do in (or to) the vineyard, but rather what the vineyard gives them in the most basic sense. For example, the soils, sub-soils, topography, exposure and all aspects of temperature along with seasonal rainfall, fog and other climatic conditions.” Learn, and taste, how the terroir of the wine you drink affects your experience in the glass.
