Wine and Place : A Terroir Reader, Hardback Book

Description

The concept of terroir is one of the most celebrated and controversial subjects in wine today.

Most will agree that well-made wine has the capacity to express "somewhereness," a set of consistent aromatics, flavors, or textures that amount to a signature expression of place.

But for every advocate there is a skeptic, and for every writer singing praises related to terroir there is a study or a detractor seeking to debunk terroir as a myth.

Wine and Place examines terroir using a multitude of voices and multiple points of view-from science to literature, from winemakers to wine critics-seeking not to prove its veracity but to explore its pros, its cons, and its other aspects.

This comprehensive anthology lets the reader come to one's own conclusion about terroir.
