This lecture focuses on terroir, a French notion that encompasses the climate, landscape, soil, and people that contribute to the growing of great grapes and the making of fine wine. Unlike most other beverages, wine has a special quality of invoking positive images of a specific place - it is the expression of the distinctiveness and individuality of a particular site, a sense of place. This talk provides insights into what science knows about terroir and its role on wine typicity and wine styles and provides examples of different terroirs around the world, including Southern Oregon.
