Getting Dirty: Understanding Terroir

There is so much discussion about place of origin, but what is the impact of place, climate, soil, and culture on the flavor of wine?  Many argue that terroir is impossible to define or identify, so let’s talk about this very European idea of winemaking.  Hopefully, we can come to some agreement on the significance of this evasive term.

To tackle this conundrum, we will sample a single varietal from 4 distinctly different regions.
