My Wine Tour Approach:Terroir
Wine Uncovered offers expert-led guided visits to leading wine domaines in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Rasteau, Gigondas, Vacqueyras, Cairanne, Tavel, Lirac, Sablet, Séguret and other Rhône Valley appellations.
French wine production is focussed on the vineyard and what the terroir (growing conditions) brings to the wine, in particular the diversity of wine styles as each grower seeks to express their terroir in their wine. I contrast this approach to the more cellar-led approach prevalent in other regions where the winemaker is the star. In France, we talk more about “growing” wines and embracing the diversity that this brings, as opposed to “making” them in the cellar.
