What's Terroir?

Tue. Jul 25 - All Day

Venue: Johnson Estate Winery

WNY and PA have the perfect Germanic micro-climate for growing European grapes (Pinot Noir, Riesling, Chardonnay) and producing world-class wines. The region’s wines are influenced by a unique combination of geography, soils, weather, and agriculture. That is “terroir.”

Your narrated bus from Chautauqua sets the stage. Then winemaker Jeff Murphy and owner Fred Johnson will lead you through the vineyards to sample wines. See, touch, and taste the ripening grapes, and enjoy a summer afternoon discovering the meaning of terroir. Seven wines and food pairings.

Heavy rain cancels. Meet in Turner Community Center Lobby. Fees: 1 session • $99
