Why do we organize it?

“Terroir is the dream of mankind for thousands of years.” Said by Mr. Aubert de Villaine, Honorary President of the Association des Climats du Vignoble de Bourgogne, co-owner of the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, in his keynote speech in the first “Terroir Renaissance International Wine Culture Symposium” in 2015. His words touched countless Chinese wine lovers. Terroir, is the set of factors of natural environment and human including land, mountains, climate, human’s customs and habits. Wine is representative product of terroir. And terroir is the foundation of all great wines. To understand and to share the great culture of wine, it’s crucial to learn the concept and practice of terroir.
