Scary Words (I): Terroir & Vintage

I think the title needs no further explanation. Scary is how some of us feel, or at least a bit apprehensive, in our first approach to the wine world. I hope, little by little, with some explanations of the vocabulary, that your knowledge becomes more comprehensive, useful, easy and fun…because to know is to love!.
In this post you will get an explanation of what an expert is saying when she or he talks about the terroir  of wine, or about a specific vintage of wine.
