At Bishop’s Cellar, we love to think of wine as the ultimate canvas to tell a story: where it’s from, its journey to the bottle, the countless decisions that were made to produce the resulting wine. The French call this terroir. The excellent online resource, Wine Folly, defines terroir as “ how a particular region’s climate, soils and aspect (terrain) affect the taste of wine. Some regions are said to have more ‘terroir’ than others.”
Join us for a tasting focused on soil! There are hundreds of different types of soil, rock and mineral deposits in the world’s vineyards. We’ll look at a few common soil types expressed in common wine styles and together we’ll taste for terroir.
Tickets are $25.00 and can be purchased on Eventbrite below. As always, the tasting starts at 5:00 PM and will finish at 7:00 PM. The event will be accompanied by delicious snacks.
