Terroir. It is the French word that refers to a region’s climate, geography, and even cultural traditions that affect the flavor of the region’s wines and adds to its “sense of place”. There’s a special terroir in Western New York and Pennsylvania — and it doesn’t just apply to the 30,000 acres of grapes in the region used for juice and wine — but to the wealth of food resources available to residents and visitors — whether a cheese made from local cow’s milk, poultry from free-range chickens, or the regions fruits and produce just because they taste better.
