What is Terroir ?

Terroir is the characteristic "flavor", imparted to a wine,
by the Environment in which it is produced.

Terroir is a reference to the whole ecology of a vineyard AND the "flavor" this ecology promotes in the wines made from its fruit. A vineyard's ecology includes more elements than one could possibly describe, that come together in complex ways to create grapes with inimitable composition and wines with their own unique personality.  Simply put, Terroir is the "flavor" of a Place, at a moment in Time, shaped by the hand of the People.
