On the Road with JHU – Terroir: A Sense of Place for Food and Drinks

Wine Types
Derived from the French word terre, meaning “earth”, terroir refers to the environmental factors that affect crops in specific reasons. During this event, you’ll uncover the terroir of the Pacific Northwest region of the United States through three lenses while exploring some wine from the region. As we discuss terroir in food with a focus on wine, we’ll hear from viticulturists and fellow alumni, David (School of Medicine ’72) and Jeanne (School of Medicine ’69) Crawford Beck, who will share their knowledge of terroir as it relates to the grapes they grow at the Crawford Beck Vineyard in Amity, OR and lead us through a wine tasting (optional) featuring Winderlea Vineyard & Winery, a local Oregon wine.
