I found the most amazing written definition of terroir (thank Jamie Goode on Twitter for this one!)
When I took my final exam(s) for the sommelier education last year, the very first question on the written portion of the exam was “explain terroir”. I wrote about 3 pages on what I felt terroir was, so I am reasonably opinionated on this question.
In Thor Iverson’s blog post “Somewhere, a place for us”, he explains terroir so thoroughly that I had to provide the link to his post here in my blog for my frinds to read. It is extremely well-written, concise and I think nails it. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did.
So, here is the link to “Somewhere, a place for us”
