What is Terroir? Many people have heard the word; as many people have an opinion about its existence or not. When the soil/rock makeup of the vineyards, such as those pictured here, is combined with altitude, orientation, mesoclimate and the surrounding vegetation, this gives a certain taste profile, to the point of showing common features between different grape varieties. This, therefore is what links the grape flavours we bring into the winery and the land they come from, flavours that have their unique imprint and that are found later in the bottle. This is terroir.
