Terroir

     ter·roir

       /terˈwär/

noun

the complete natural environment in which a particular wine is produced, including factors such as the soil, topography, and climate.

There is so much more than just soil composition that gives wine a certain aroma, flavor, or characteristic. Temperature, elevation, rainfall, sun exposure, wind patterns, coastal and river influences all play important parts in giving wines their 'sense of place.' With so many microclimates and one of the world's most diverse soil compositions, California's terroir produces very complex and expressive wines that are truly unique and we could not be happier to introduce them to you.
