Terroir refers to the characteristics of the soil, climate, and geography of an agricultural region. Factors like temperature, terrain, and the amount of sun and rain an area gets affect the notes of a grape. Of course, this also dictates what varietals can be grown.
The terroir of Napa Valley is ideal for growing select wine grapes and a wide variety of vegetables and fruits. During Restaurant Week, the superiority of the soil will be evident. Participating restaurants are Terroir To Table® bringing diners only the freshest food and the best-tasting wine.
