Terratorium, Rose of Grenache, El Dorado, 2021Regular price $26.00 Save $-26.00
Terratorium is a mindset of people and places joining forces. It all started with the Inside Winemaking Podcast that united three winemakers together, Cincinnati native Ben Matthews, Jim Duane and Cameron Laurent. After a winemaking seminar and a couple harvest gigs in Napa Valley, the friendship cemented a winery project based in central California in 2018. Terratorium comes from the word “terroir” which denotes the French way of saying “a sense of place.” The value of their wines is insane as they are direct to consumer. Cinci local Ben Matthews studied abroad in Germany as an undergrad political science major and discovered a love for Riesling which is where he caught the wine bug.
This is Terratorium’s first rosé and hails from Starfield Vineyard just west of the Sierra Nevada mountains in the El Dorado appellation. This Grenache makes for the perfect rosé which is fresh, dry, and juicy. The wine is versatile with food pairings and dying to be opened immediately. It’s aged for just five months before release.
