Ready to connect with like-minded wine lovers? Join our wine and food pairings in Amsterdam and throughout the Netherlands!

Terroir Journey organizes wine tastings since 2019 internationally. We only focus on wines made from indigenous (native to their regions) grape varieties. This means that you will not only taste outstanding wines during our events, but also learn about wines and grapes that are not known to the broad public.

Most of the wines that we present you on our wine events are hard or impossible to find in the Netherlands. Many of the wines are our own import via Once Upon A Wine.nl

The wine tastings and food pairings are organized by our founder, Henrietta Straton, a WSET certified wine educator, wine tour organizer and wine event host. So expect our events to be highly informative and feel free to ask any questions related to winemaking, winegrowing, wine regions and wine tasting.

We organize wine tastings at diverse restaurants in Amsterdam and base our decision on the availability of authentic food pairing options to match our unusual wines.

Join us and discover wines you didn't know existed!
