What is Terroir?

Holy Terror Batman! No, Robin, the word is, "Terroir."

The Triangle Chapter of the American Wine Society Presents

"Terroir - What is it and Does it Really Matter?"

February 10, 2019
4 p.m.
Home of Isaac and Melissa Porter
Durham, NC
Presenters:  Isaac and Melissa

Terroir is that mysterious element we hear so much about but understand so little.  Now, the Triangle AWS Chapter offers an extraordinary wine tasting event that will allow members to "tastefully" explore exactly what terroir means to the wine consumer and to the winemaker.

Did you know that, over the centuries, winemakers developed the concept of terroir by observing the differences in wines from different regions, vineyards, and even different sections of the same vineyard?  The winemakers began to crystallize the concept of terroir as a way of describing the unique aspects of a place that influence and shape the wine made from it.  Join the AWS in a unique wine tasting event that will answer the age-old questions:


Please bring your favorite go to dish for a backyard BBQ or a bottle of wine to share after the tasting.  Remember to label your dish if it contains any of the following ingredients: anchovies, coconut, mustard, cheese, garlic, onions, or gluten.
