More Dirt on Terroir

Like many great film classics that have been produced with “dirt” in their titles, many great classic wines have been produced as a reflection of their “dirt.”

1967The Dirty Dozen
That year also turned out the exquisite Saurternes of Chateau d’Yquem.

1971Dirty Harry
1971 also produced Penfolds bold Bin 389 Cabernet/Shiraz.

1987Dirty Dancing
Italy’s rustic Tetti Di Neive Barbaresco came out in 1987.

1988Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
Also released that year was the delightful Quady Starboard ‘Batch 88”
Vintage Port.

1994A Low Down Dirty Shame 
1994 also gave us Joseph Phelps elegant Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.

2001Joe Dirt 
And in 2001 came Virginia’s Horton Vineyards Viognier.

While only The Dirty Dozen deals with acual dirt, you could say all these movies exhibited traits of “Terroir” in their overall being, appearance and characteristics.

In all seriousness, the wines that were produced in their given years have everything to do with actual dirt. Terroir is a quality not to be overlooked when speaking about wine and assessing its unique qualities.

For over three decades the GHA has dedicated itself to determine the best wines produced in U.S.appellations and beyond.  Wines are carefully categorized and judged within their specific AVAs.  After the wines are scored, the judges compare the commonalities of each specific flight warding the winners a truly unique standing. 

A wine in Grand Harvest can put your wine into a whole new sales category since favorable awards support increased local and regional sales.

So, how does your  wine compare?
