Terroir captures all the natural conditions that influence the biology of the vine and, consequently, the composition of the grape itself. Terroir is the meeting of climate, soil and landscape, the interaction of an infinite number of factors: Night and daytime temperatures, rainfall distribution, hours of sunshine, slope and soil permeability, just to name a few. All of these factors interact with each other to form what we call terroir in each individual part of a winegrowing region.
Terroir is therefore defined as a piece of land that is largely untouched by human influence.
Terroir (French “area”, from Latin terra “earth”): The natural condition of the soil influences both vine and grape.
Old vines, yield reduction and high physiological maturity produce expressive, deep-fruited wines, with elegant body and great balance. Accompanied by fine tannins, fresh acidity as well as excellent storage potential.
The orientation of the soil is essential here.
