Know thy dirt – Barolo terroir

This is where it all starts – down in the dirt. If you’ve ever seen these beautiful Langhe hills you’ll have been struck not just by the bright velvety greenness of the vineyards, but also by the colour of the soil itself. The Langhe landscape is one of jigsaw puzzle beauty – green parcels divided neatly by the white strips of soil.

This photo is not strictly speaking of Barolo territory but it is emblematic of this area in summer months. Freshly plowed fields with vineyards as a backdrop are none other than the visual representation of the evolution from ground to bottle. A great place to start a deeper understanding is at the Barolo wine museum. For a deeper understanding of Barolo terroir and its soils, check out Trediberri.
