This week we catch up with our good friend Winemaker Emma Garner as she gives us a breakdown of the 2014 vintage at Thirty Bench.
This coming Monday Emma will be participating in this year’s Terroir symposium as part of a panel discussion/tasting around the concept of Terroir.
A Different Look At Terroir: How Much Do Soils Actually Matter?
The term terroir is often thrown about with abandon. In this seminar/tasting we ask what the term really means, and how much do its many different elements actually influence the character of the finished wine?
