In Harmony with Terroir
Terroir, comes from the word “terre” which is French for “soil." Terroir inspired Winemaking is the concept by which wine is made in the vineyard; the sense of place (specific vineyard), shapes and influences the wine. The wine in the bottle is a direct representation of the quality of the grapes that are grown and of the site where it is grown. This is very different than commercial winemaking where the juice and wine is manipulated to serve mass public trends.
Inherently, Terroir Winemaking will always produce a more complex, unique, and interesting product. Grape varietal, and the influences of the grape grower, and the winemaker affect the quality of the wine, however there are other influences that go beyond these. The composition of the soil, the aspect of the land, the precise climate and weather where the vineyard is located, and its physical geography all are elements of Terroir. In Terroir inspired winemaking, all these elements are taken into account when selecting grape varietals and clones best adapted for the Terroir. Ultimately, the winemaker brings out the expression of the wine’s terroir.
