About Terroir Journey
What is terroir? Soil, climate, elevation, geographical influencers nearby, natural catastrophes, yeasts and microbes in the winery, people...
It's never been an easy question :) For me terroir is what makes the wine in my glass special. It's where the wine's story comes from. Without it, it's just a fermented grape juice what you drink.
My name is Henrietta and one day I'll have my own winery.
Before that happens, I'm almost fully at your disposal to talk, drink & travel WINE.
I'm travelling to either obscure wine regions which are normally off the radar of most of wine consumers, or to well-known established appellations but always with a focus on boutique wineries, producing wine of exceptional quality in limited quantities.
With me you will discover the best wineries to visit in Europe and beyond if you are looking for rare, uncommon wine.
My wine blog will be useful for beginners who want to understand the diverse winemaking processes, so don't expect only wine tasting reviews here ;) At the same time, I hope to please the curiosity of experienced wine geeks who will find here a lot of information about extinct grape varieties, obscure wine routes and boutique wineries.
