Who is Terroiristen?
Terroiristen – what does it mean? The name derives from the french word terroir, meaning soil and microclimate. A ‘Terroirist’ is thus a wine maker who cultivates his/her vines and vinifies their grapes according to methods which respect and reflect the soil and the environment. Different factors influence the vines and subsequently the final product: the wine. Important factors are hours of sun, the inclination of the vineyard (exposure to the sun), temperature, rain, drainage conditions, wind conditions, soil composition including its contents of minerals and micro organisms. So when you speak about terroir-driven wines, it may actually be possible to recognise some of these factors.
