Yes, you did not read it wrong. Planet Sauternes: this was one of many other funny answers received in a survey developed by Decanter Magazine in England. To imagine Terroir as a dog breed, or even a French horror movie style, shows that the wine world is still an area little known to the English people.
On the other hand, the survey also showed that English, more than 50% of respondents, are very interested in wine, and would like to learn more about it, as 2 out of 3 English showed not knowing, for example, where to start from when the subject is matching the drink with the food. Finally, 17% of them said they had already been ashamed of certain snobbish waiters out of ignorance.
Here at Monduvin we welcome this, as people interest is growing in the search for information, tips and curiosity surrounding wine, thus increasing our motivation to pursue content that carries, in addition to didactics, the pleasure of discovery.
If it depends on us, you will be able to recognize the name of a good Bordeaux wine, such as Sauternes and differentiate the main components of a Terroir, such as: location, soil, climate and the characteristics of the producer, from a canine pedigree, for example, right?
