Fine Wine and Terroir - The Geoscience Perspective explores geoscience aspects of the physical environment of terroir, a French word representing the integration of climate, soil, geology and other factors shaping the character and quality of wine. This collection of articles, mainly from the quarterly journal Geoscience Canada, covers a wide range of topics in more than a dozen viticultural regions on three continents. Tying these studies together is the application of basic science to better understand the physical environment affecting grape and wine quality. These articles provide a series of benchmarks critical to understanding terroir in existing vineyards, and a firm foundation for future terroir studies.<o:p></o:p>
