Man or terroir?

How much is the taste of wine influenced by man rather than terroir? Well, that depends…. Some would argue that sparkling wine’s style, for example, is created by man as the winemaker decides which wines and which quantities are included in the assemblage or blend. And yet all those complex elements and interactions of terroir also play an incisive role. Our culinary wine evening exploded a few myths and also underscored how we can reach a higher state of happiness when wine is matched perfectly with food. I’ll drink to that.
