Wine is the voice of nature, spoken in the language of the senses. It can take you on journey into the earth, through the sunlight and around the world. Terroir Talking features images and stories to inspire us to explore wine, and life, more deeply. Take a little time and enjoy!
Xinomavro, one of the autochthonous Greek varieties, defies pronunciation unless you have a good teacher (see Apostolos Thymiopoulos video below). In Greek, xino means “acid” and mavro means “black,” but the translation bears no resemblance to the wines that Xinomavro becomes today, except that they still have a strong acidic nature.
terroir [ terˈwahr ] noun + talking [ˈtah king ] verb
Terroir is a French word for the whole natural environment of wine including soil,
climate and topography. Nature speaks with us in the language of the senses, through
wine, to remind us of our part in the delicate ecosystem of life.
