Terroir

United States, France, Spain/2019/ 6:58/English

The French word ‘terroir’ is used across many languages and cultures to describe the soil and climate factors that give wine its character. Metaphorically, we can look at our human upbringing and the resulting character of various world cultures as ‘terroir’. Factually, we all originate from women, but it is the rare culture that respects or honours this truth. Why do we pervert the vessel of life to its own self-denial?
