**terroir= In theory, terroir is an umbrella term that combines all the different factors that influence wine: the impact of the climate, soil, topography, humidity, rainfall, sunshine, soil chemicals but also human intervention on the cultivation of grapes, when this is done in a traditional way which is respectful of the ecosystem.
