Who is Terroir Wines
Terroir Wines is a labour of love by its partners for the last four years. At Terroir Wines, we aspire to break the tradition of how wine is perceived. We seek to offer the best:
Flavours: We are after the best [real] flavours. The wines we offer are at the height of its flavour, redefining what every day drinking should be
Award winning wines: We offer wines that meet the critics approval.
Curated experiences: We focus on what matters. We provide an opportunity to enjoy a wide range of varieties on offer from the diverse wine producing regions.
This platform is our canvas to share our aspiration to appreciate, and importantly enjoy the uniqueness of each individual wine.
We strive to be the vigilant voice to every one out there that learning about wines is fun, and it does not have to be intimidating.
What do wines mean to us
Wines are made from grapes that are grown in the most beautiful lands of, and in the world.
These beautiful and strong energies build potential of the place, and wine is about these grapes rising to challenges and overcoming adversity. All that goodness that gets into these precious bottles of wines.
Wines to us are the "potential du terroir" [potential of the land], the truth of what is coming from the earth, with stories to be told
What is Terroir
Terroir encompasses that the land and climate where the grapes are grown impart unique characteristics into the grape that could not be imparted by any other region of the world
Or simply put, Terroir is how a particular region’s climate, soils and terrain and traditional wine making practices affect the taste of wine.
(Just like how an apple grown in the US, would taste different from an apple grown in Japan...)
We represent Organic, Biodynamic and sustainable wines
We have sourced and curated wines which are organic or biodynamic (and sustainable).
What does that mean?
Organic means that our wines are made from grapes grown in vineyards which are clean from the use of artificial inputs, including synthetic fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides.
Biodynamic is a holistic way of looking at the vineyard and winery as one, cohesive self-sustaining unit that lives in harmony with nature, gravity and seasons.
Similar to organic practices, synthetic chemicals are not permitted. Biodynamic practices create healthier plants and heal the earth by replenishing the soil and adding vitality to the plant and soil to ensure sustainable farming.
What this means in simple terms, is that this helps our planet continue to go round and round, hence sustainable. :)
What does this mean for you?
You would be doing your part for the environment and ecosystem, for one. And aside from consuming wine that is free from chemicals and additives, it also translates into the its taste and produces flavours which reflects the terroir, which are pure and inherent, and just delicious!

We represent wines from select regions
This diversity from the different soil types at varying altitudes and microclimates combined with the region’s long history of wine-making, creates some very exciting variety of wine styles from robust reds to refreshing whites, and even some excellent sparkling wine.
More than 70% of wines produced here are the reds (which tend to be more full-bodied and fruit driven. Most of the producers in this region make blends instead of single varietal wines, as there are so many different grape varieties that grow together.
Home to International grapes (Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay), and the traditional Rhône grapes of Mourvedre, Grenache, Syrah, and Viognier.
Aside from the strict regulations and standards controlled by the AOC on Champagne making, the high quality of Champagne is also a result of the region’s unique terroir:
The region’s northern location results in a cold and harsh condition for the vines
Oceanic influence which causes a steady rainfall throughout the year
Continental influence , which ensures ideal sunlight during the summer season, but can be devastating in winter with the frosts
Limestone subsoil, which keeps the vines naturally watered throughout the year
The main grapes grown in the region include Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier.
Moulis is the smallest appellation of the Médoc, located on the left bank, north-west from Bordeaux.
It’s geographic situation is great for wine production, being close enough to the ocean and the river to take advantage of oceanic climate but also far enough not to suffer from humidity.
It’s exceptional diversity of its terroirs results in the production of some high-quality wines, as the soil of Moulis slopes perpendicularly towards the Gironde River , its gravel soils are based on chalky-clay-ey subsoil to the east, sandstone and mix of clay and limestone to the west and southwest.
Despite having no classed growths in Moulis-en-Medoc, its high-quality wines offers a similar style to the wines produced by their more prestigious neighbor Margaux.
Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are the 2 main grapes planted in the appellation.
Puglia has been producing wine for over 2,000 years and an array of grape varieties are planted.
A wide ampelography collection makes the difference between Puglia and other Italian or Southern regions. Characterized by a marked mutability of its territory, Puglia can count on a wide variety of terroir that is expressed in a rich bouquet of aromas and flavors without equal. It changes from Daunia mountain peaks to the sandy coast of Salento going through large and sunny hill areas.
The most significant red grapes cultivated in the region are Primitivo, Negroamaro, Malvasia Nera and Uva di Troia. White grape varieties include Verdeca, Malvasia Bianca and Trebbiano.
