Terroir is a concept so French that the word doesn’t have an equivalent in any other language. Terroir is a genetic heritage of great wines. Without it, nothing is possible, however its character is only truly revealed as a result of the work and determination of men.
Among the factors that make up the terroir of the great growths are first and foremost, the natural conditions, the soil and the climate. It’s the climate that permits vine cultivation and, under certain conditions, enables the grapes to ripen harmoniously.
