About this Webinar:
It has often been said that great wines are made in the vineyard. Winegrowers and winemakers wax lyrically about the terroir of their vineyards, but what exactly does “terroir” mean and why do wine enthusiasts care? The French term “terroir” doesn’t have a literal translation and the common interpretation is “sense of place” but it’s often reduced to mean “the soil” for simplicity, but it is so much more than that. In this session we will discuss the environmental influences that make up the concept of terroir and how they influence the personality of the grape and the wines you enjoy.
